Abstract

Given the difficulty in determining certain details about religious life in medieval Russia using the available sources, conflicting accounts from foreign descriptions of Moscow need to be carefully scrutinized. A report, which Johann Fabri wrote in 1525 and published the following year, explains at least as much about Fabri's interests—and those of Archduke Ferdinand whom be served—as it does about religion in Muscovy. The strong degree of affinity that Fabri sought to demonstrate between the "religion of the Muscovites" and Catholic faith and practice attests to the political and polemical motivations that arose out of his immediate context.
