Chapter Summary

This chapter examines some of the main factors behind Valaam's development from a dilapidated monastic dwelling to a flourishing monastery in relation to each other. The main historical lines of the multifaceted development of the monastery are sketched with a relatively large brush, focusing on certain processes rather than events or persons. A reader wishing to be acquainted in more detail with some specific features of Valaam's phases or monastic activities will find a relatively wide array of publications to choose. In order to examine the causalities of Valaam's rise to Russian-wide fame in the nineteenth century, one has to start from the re- establishment of the monastery. The relationship between Valaam and imperial circles warmed towards the turn of the nineteenth century. One of the main impetuses of the attention that Valaam was receiving seems to have been the impressive figure of Metropolitan Gavriil.
