The holy Vladimir, first hierarch martyred by the godless in the wake of the Bolshevik revolution, suffered willingly the way of the Cross. The climate surrounding his martyrdom was one of such turmoil, however, that even within the year of his death it was possible for the core of this book to be published in Kiev. Additional documents and remembrances were added, and the entire work reprinted in Russian at Holy Trinity Monastery in 1981; from that edition the present translation was prepared, with the addition of numerous photographs. The work, while profoundly spiritual in content, is also an invaluable document for an understanding of the political and historical turmoil in the midst of which St. Vladimir suffered.
