Cover Page


The article analyses missionary activity of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Turkestan region. The author shows that Orthodox missionary in the region of traditional Islam expansion was not supported by the Turkestan military administration (secretly it was even procrastinated by the administration). Mainly Orthodox missionary was aimed at turning pagans to Christians; the number of neophytes was not significant.
