    The Romanov Family’s Alphabet v.2 - O is for the Orthodox Catholic Church.

    The whole Imperial Family of Russia was born to the Russian Orthodox religion (with the exception of Empress Alexandra Feodorovna who was converted from Lutheranism). The family was very religious and was dutiful to their faith. In some of the rooms in the Alexander Palace, orthodox icons hanged on the walls. Before the marriage to Nicholas in 1894, Alexandra was troubled by the requirement that she renounce her Lutheran faith, as a Russian tsarina had to be Orthodox, but she was persuaded and eventually became a fervent convert. The Big Pair, Olga and Tatiana, was more religious than the Little Pair. However, Tatiana’s motive back of her religion was: ‘It is my duty,’ while Olga Nikolaevna had it in her heart.

    The family was murdered on the night of July 16-17, 1918 at the Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg, Russia; the site of their execution is now beneath the altar of the The Church on Blood. The family was canonized in 1981 as new martyrs by the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad (outside Russia). They were canonized along with their servants, who had been killed along with them. All were canonized as victims of oppression by the Bolsheviks. The Russian Orthodox Church inside Russia did not canonize the servants, two of whom were not Russian Orthodox: Alexei Trupp was Roman Catholic and Catherine Adolphovna Schneider was Lutheran.

    In 1992, Grand Duchess Elizabeth Fyodorovna and Varvara Yakovleva were canonized as New-Martyr Elizabeth and New-Martyr Barbara by the Moscow Patriarchate. The princes and others killed with them were not canonized. In 2000, after much debate (there were those who rejected the family’s classification as martyrs because they were not killed because of their religious faith), the Romanov family was canonized as passion bearers by the Moscow Patriarchate.
