>(Isiderskiy), a renovationist.
First of all, the surname of the renovationist bishop Evdokim was
**Meshcherskiy**, not "Isiderskiy."
Secondly, Evdokim (Meshcherskiy) was the Orthodox Ruling Bishop of Nizhny
Novgorod from 1918 to June 3/16, 1922. From June 3/16, 1922 to October
20/November 2, 1922 he was the Renovationist Bishop of Nizhny Novgorod.
From October 20/November 2, 1922 to March 31/April 13, 1923--he was the
Renovationist Bishop of Odessa. From March 31/April 13, 1924 to September,
1924, he was the Renovationist Bishop of Kirov.
The Orthodox (Non-Renovationist) See of Nizhny Novgorod was vacant from
June 3/16, 1922 to March 18/31, 1924, when Metr. Sergius (Stragorodsky) was
appointed by Patriarch Tikhon.
With love in Christ,
Prot. Alexander Lebedeff
