Gorski, Theophylact, a Russian theologian, died bishop of Kolomna in 1788. He wrote Orthodoxae orientalis Ecclesiae Dogmata (Lpz. 1784), and a Compendium of Christian Dogmas, in Latin and Russian, which has since been translated into German and French (St. Petersburg, 1792). These books, although in general use in the Russian seminaries, openly advocate Protestant views, and are opposed both to the Roman Catholic and to the orthodox Greek dogmas.
