Glorification of Admiral Kolchak.
« on: September 20, 2009, 01:16:22 AM »
Is there a movement within the Russian Orthodox Church to glorify Admiral Kolchak, the leader of the White army in Siberia who was executed by the reads in 1920?

Has this glorification already occurred within ROCOR (when they glorified thousands of new martyrs in 1981)?

Just curious.  For those who don't know, Kolchak is my new avatar.  I'm currently doing a lot of research on him, especially his White army time.

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Why would there be a movement to glorify him as a saint?  I'm not trying to be controversial.  I've just never heard of the man and know even less of the holiness of his way of life and death.
