Chosen for His People: A Biography of Patriarch Tikhon

by Jane Swan
Preface by Scott M. Kenworthy

“St Tikhon (Bellavin, 1865–1925), Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia from 1917 to 1925, was one of the most important figures in twentieth-century Orthodox Church history. Moreover, as head of the largest nongovernmental institution in Russia at the time of one of the twentieth century’s pivotal events—the Russian Revolution—he is a key figure in modern world history. It is a remarkable fact, therefore, that Jane Swan’s book, originally published half a century ago, remains the only English-language biography.”
