May the Lord be with you all,
I'm working on a project cornening what could be, if I am lucky, a
biography of Prince Vladimir Pavlovitch Paley (1897-1918), a talented
poet and artist who was also a faithful Orthodox Christian. He was
murdered in an atrocious way by the bolsheviks in Alapaevsk on July
18, 1918, along with Grand Princess Elisabeta Fiodorovna, several
members of the Romanov Family, Sister Varvara Yakovleva and Fyodor
Recently I read that the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad canonized all
of the victims of this massacre as Martyrs, back in 1981. Since this
aspect would be an important element to mention in my work, I would
be really grateful for any information that you could provide me with
about it, specially if there is a decree or resolution of the Church
on this respect whose text may be available.
My address is vladimirpaley@...
I would also thank for any information that you may have about the
life and works of Prince Paley. In case anybody is interested, there
is a page about him (in Russian). The link is
Glory be to God for all things!
Thank you very much,
