      This is not fully historically accurate.

      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,
