The activity of the Orthodox mission in Ukraine at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries
The purpose of this article is to describe only one aspect of the missionary activity of the Orthodox Church - anti-sectarian. The author dwells on the analysis of the legal field in which religious sectarian communities function, the peculiarities of the organization of the Orthodox missionary apparatus and the confrontation between the sectarian and Orthodox missionary directions. Note that the use by the author of the term "sectarianism" is due to specific historical circumstances - in the early twentieth century. Protestant and other religious entities were qualified as sectarian in official literature and official relations.
