Little is known regarding prisons located inside Russian Orthodox monasteries for the incarceration and persecution of religious dissenters and sectarians, political activists, and criminals. This book focuses on the history of such prisons and the lives of the inmates subject to monastery incarceration by Imperial Russia and the Russian Orthodox Church. The period covered begins 1441, and ends 1905. Likewise included are the women incarcerated in convents over the same period. This is a part of history that is unknown to the non-Russian speaking world, and which the author hopes to unveil. This book deals with the fate of those known as monastery prisoners, those individuals having the misfortune due to violations against Orthodoxy, or against Imperial Russia, to be incarcerated in a monastery prison. Daniel H Shubin has written several books on history, philosophy and religion of Russia.
