Monument to Hermogenes of Moscow Unveiled in Moscow

Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill has consecrated the Hermogenes Monument in Aleksandrovsky Garden in Moscow. 

The winner of the project contest is a creative team headed by the People’s Artist of Russia Salavat Shcherbakov and the Merited Architect of Russia Igor Voskresensky.

The concept of this monument is about 200 years old. According to the initial plan it was expected to appear on the place of the Mausoleum, opposite to the Minin and Pozharsky Monument. The role of Hermogenes in the history of Russia was similar to the role of the people’s volunteer corps. The thing that was completed under leadership of Minin and Pozharsky had been started and inspired by the Patriarch Hermogenes. For this boldness to inspire people to stop obeying interventionists and foreign belief, for his letters with appeals to gather militia he was confined in a vault of Chudovo Monastery and starved to death in the Time of Troubles in 1612.

In 1913 he was canonized and his relics were transferred to the Assumption Cathedral of the Kremlin, whereas setting up the monument was on the agenda. World War I and October Revolution prevented the monument to appear at that time.
