Grave of Ender Philotheus Discovered by Pskov Archeologists

In the course of digging of the necropolis area in the Yelizarov Monastery of the Saviour in Pskov, archeologists have found a grave that presumably belonged to the mysterious Elder Philotheus.
      The necropolis appeared not later than the 16th century. The archeologists suppose that one of the unearthed entombments belonged to the Elder Philotheus, known as the author of the historyosophical concepts of Russian statehood Moscow is the Third Rome.
      Father Philotheus (around 1465-1542) was the hegumen of the Yelizarov Monastery in the settlement of Yelizarovo, Pskov. In his letters to the Great Prince Vasili III he introduced the theses of the concept Moscow is the Third Rome including the famous expression: Two Romes collapsed, the third one stands, and the fourth one is not destined to be.
