Ambrose Podobjedow

Ambrose Podobjedow a Russian ecclesiastic, was born November 30, 1742, in the government of Vladimir. He was educated at the Troiz monastery and took holy orders in 1768. Having been elevated to the bishopric of Sjewsk, he took charge, in 1785, of the Kasan eparchy; was in 1794 elected member of the Holy Synod, and in 1799 made archbishop of St. Petersburg, Esthonia, and Finland. In the year following he received the archepiscopal see of Novgorod, with the appointment as metropolitan, and died May 21 (June 2), 1818. He wrote an ascetical work, in three vols. (Moscow, 1810), and A Guide to the Reading of the Holy Scriptures (new ed. ibid. 1840). His most important work, however, is his Russian Church history, Historia Rossijskoi Ierarchij (ibid. 1807-15, 6 volumes; 2d ed. 1827). (B.P.)
