I am interested in learning more about the Sobor which took place in Russia just before the revolution.

http://orthodoxwiki.org/All-Russian_Church_Council_of_1917-1918

Does anyone know if there is a good and reasonably detailed account in English of the proceedings, either on-line or in book form. The link above just references an unpublished dissertation and an article by Fr John Meyendorff. Does anyone know iof any more detailed accounts?

In English, check out:

Benigsen, George M. "Year of 1917 in the history of the Russian church." St Vladimir's Seminary Quarterly 7, no. 3 (January 1, 1963): 115-132.

Bogolepov, A. A. Church reforms in Russia, 1905-1918, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the All-Russian Church Council of 1917-1918. Trans. A. E. Moorhouse. Bridgeport, Conn.: Publications Committee of the Metropolitan Council of the Russian Orthodox Church of America, 1966.

Also, check out Vols. 5 and 6 of the Collected Works of Fr. Georges Florovsky. These volumes contain a translation of his famous Putì Russkago Bogosloviya (Paris, 1937). While the Sobor only plays a small role, Florovsky's work definitely has unique content and explains the situation leading up to the Sobor.


P.S. I've never read it, but just found this one too: Cunningham, James W. The gates of hell: The Great Sobor of the Russian Orthodox Church, 1917-1918 (Minnesota Mediterranean and East European monographs), 2002.

You can download a pdf of the book's introduction here: http://www.dyrud.org/IntroGatesofHell.pdf
