Aether Hour Ep. 14: Ivan Grozny: Tsar of the 3rd Rome (the Terrible)!

Dmitriy & Conrad discuss the fascinating & tumultuous life/reign of Tsar Ivan IV of the Rurikid Dynasty (Schemamonk Jonah in repose), & how he shaped the Russian Empire & even world Orthodoxy today!

In this huge Aether Hour we get into the non-propaganda version of the life of Ivan “the Terrible”and his relevance to Christian history. The grandson of Sophia Palailogos (princess of the Byzantine Imperial line) Ivan became the first Tsar of Russia and the first Christian Emperor in the wake of the fall of Constantinople. He free tens of thousands of slaves, married over 6 women, mercilessly persecuted the corrupt aristocratic class, surrounded himself with Fool’s for Christ, built incredible Churches & monasteries, and ultimately embraced monasticism. Join us in learning more about this titanic figure! 👇🏻
