The Knights of Sophia
« on: December 09, 2005, 10:41:19 PM »
I was intrigued when I found out that Vladimir Solovyov (who, in case you couldn't tell, I am a big fan of......for those who don't like it: eat a soy-burger) founded a chivalric society called the "Knights of Sophia".  Could anyone tell me more information on this matter?  Does this society still exist?  Did they defend the Tsar?  Do they still exist?  What did they do?

Googling "Knights of Sophia" (in quotes) gives 0 results. Also, a search of ' Knights of Sophia -templar "Vladimir Solovyov" ' (quotes around Vladimir Solovyov) gives a few, but fairly meaningless, pages. Are you certain he did found such a society?
Fashions and opinions among men may change, but the Orthodox tradition remains ever the same, no matter how few may follow it.
