Abstract:

Introduction. Based on the documentary base, the article refutes the opinion of some dissident writers and dissident priests of the 1960s and 1970s. about the alleged lack of initiative and silence of the Church in the person of Patriarch Pimen regarding the facts of persecution of religion in the USSR.

Results. When studying the Kostroma period of the ministry of Bishop Pimen, evidence was found of an uncompromising position in upholding and protecting the interests of the Church and the clergy, as much as was possible under the conditions of the USSR. Based on the study, it was concluded that the bishop adopted the tactics of loyalty to the state along with a firm position on a number of fundamental issues concerning the activities of the clergy in conditions of tight control of ideological bodies. Demanding in relation to internal discipline, to the preaching mission of the clergy bore fruit in the form of an increase in the religiosity of the population.

Conclusion. Pimen’s tactics proved to be justified, because outlined in the late 1980s. the improvement of relations between the state and the Church allowed the revival of the Church to begin, which happened already at the end of life and after the death of Patriarch Pimen. The 1990s became the time of the rebirth of the Church.
