Examines devotion to the cult of the saints by Russian Orthodox believers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Evidence from miracle stories, devotional literature, parish records, diocesan reports, religious publications, and archival documents demonstrates how believers sought to cultivate a direct and hands-on relationship with saints.
