Christianity captured Rus in 988 AD. e. during the reign of Prince Vladimir. How did this happen? You can read the official version of the official history of Russia, for example Ishimova of "History of Russia", Novosibirsk, 1993 brief picture was supposedly was.
Prior to Prince Vladimir paganism reigned, and Russia boomed.
Neighboring nations persuaded Vladimir to go to their faith, and to him came many ambassadors from Kama Bulgars, of German Catholics, the Jews and the Greeks, and everyone praised his faith. Vladimir initially evaluated these faith in beauty invented. Consulted with the boyars. They told him, "Everyone praises his faith, and it is better to send to different lands to find out where the faith is better." Vladimir sent ten smartest boyars to the Bulgarians, Germans and Greeks. The Bulgarians, they found poor churches, prayer sad, sad face, the Germans have a lot of practices, but without the beauty and grandeur. Finally they arrived in Constantinople.
The emperor learned of this and decided to show the Russian ministry of the patriarch. "With the patriarch served many of the clergy, the iconostasis shone in gold and silver, incense filled the church, singing and poured into the soul." External beauty and grandeur, luxury and wealth impressed and delighted boyar commission, and when she returned to Kiev, she said Vladimir: "After a person does not want a sweet bitter, and we are seeing the Greek faith, do not want another." "Well, to be therefore, choose Christianity", — said Vladimir.
And then instead of the propaganda campaign and persuade Vladimir started smashing Russian religion and adopt Christianity by force and blood. That's presented the process of Christianization of Rus. Out of all this official history that the procedure is to choose a religion, Vladimir and his entourage wore supposedly naive character. And the main role in this choice has played no meaningful religion (nobody and do not understand), and the outer beauty rituals and boyars desire for luxury and wealth. That is, according to the official version, the introduction of Christianity to Russia was the result of stupidity, Vladimir and his team. And how was it really? Whole official version, to put it mildly, not very plausible. Let us remember that the father of Prince Volodymyr the Great knyazSvyatoslav despised Christianity knowing its essence. Uniquely his words: "the Christian faith — there is ugliness." Svyatoslav's son could not, knowing the view of his father, suddenly, for no reason at all to change the religion of all the Russian ancestors. There is no such in Russia ever. And the reason for such a big decision, as the change of centuries-religion, can not be so simple, as it is described in the official history. And the people would not stand such abuse millennial religion of their ancestors. Hung to such pagan prince, and the squad would not have helped.
Let's see who is this Prince Vladimir, where he came from. Of Jews in Kiev Russia should be attributed to a very remote period. Jews who lived before Vladimir came from the Khazar kingdom. Approximately 730 Jews straddle all the Khazar, tribes and Karaite Jewish king seized power or "Hagan." Kagan with his dignitaries took Jewish, faith and made it dominant in the country. So there was a Jewish kingdom. The kingdom was strong. Even Kiev one time paid him tribute, but did not last long. In 965, Prince Svyatoslav took Sarkel Khazar fortress on the Azov Sea, and in 969, the capital of the Khazars, and fell — Itil. Svyatoslav conquered the kingdom of the Khazar Khaganate and added it to Russia. But after that Khazar Jews were quickly overrun the Kiev land. They were lured there great commercial importance of Kiev, who was lying on the main waterway of the Greeks to the Varangian Sea. Implementation of its staff to the highest echelons of power and abuse of rulers through Jewish women — is one of the most beloved of Jewish practices. The mother of Prince Svyatoslav — Princess Olga, not assuming any ill effects, hired housekeeper girl Malusha (pet name of Malka — queen in Hebrew). His father was a rabbi Malusha aforesaid, also bore the Hebrew name Malka (Hebrew — king) of the Russian city of Lubitsch, who at one time was a vassal of the Khazar Khanate (Emel'yanov "Desionizatsiya", 1979, Paris) At the instigation of his dad Malusha one moment of relaxation inebriated and seduced Prince Svyatoslav and became pregnant. Princess Olga, after learning that Malusha conceived by Svyatoslav, became angry and exiled her to the village Budutino near Pskov, where he was born Vladimir. Even in the "Tale of Bygone Years" Vladimir — grandson of Rabbi Malka was featured as "robichich" ie "ravvinych", but in the subsequent official history of Russia was persistently translated as "son of a slave." Not better treated fruits of his passing (for drunk) communication and the prince Svyatoslav. Leaving the Russian land and leaving for Bulgaria, Svetoslav eldest son Yaropolk planted reign in Kiev, Oleg in the middle ground Drevlyane and the youngest, Vladimir has not appointed any inheritance. Novgorod, striving for independence from Kiev, on the advice of Dobrynya (brother Malki) began to ask his son Vladimir Sviatoslav in princes. Svyatoslav not like Novgorod and releasing them a half-breed son of Vladimir, said, "Take it! For you and the Prince. " Novgorod was taken to his minor Vladimir, went with him and his uncle Dobrynya (it is in Russian, but the real name Dabran) and the rules of Novgorod, Vladimir yet matured (the source of "Chronicle", 1864). Dabran-Dobrynya awake behind the altar, and the thought of the thousands of years of Jewish implementation plans. At first, he sent a two-year probation Vladimir in Western Russia, where by the time the Aryan faith seriously degraded by unobtrusive subversive Jewish-psevdoyazychnikov. It is these so-called pagans long before Vladimir slowly but surely corrupting Western Russ universal fitting, rough idols, temples, temples and, mainly, the offering of blood sacrifice. Most often used for these sacrifices innocent boys, the blood that was used by the Jews in great demand. During this internship Jews taught Vladimir how he hated revenge paternal relatives for the loss of the power of his mother's relatives in Lubitsch and Khazar Khanate. He had to blow up from the inside by the Aryan faith implementation of slave Christianity. Back in Novgorod with hired money to Jewish warriors scum Vladimir cruelly and treacherously killed his brother Yaropolk (he only goy — cattle in Hebrew), and usurps power in southern Russia. The pregnant widow of his brother Saint Vladimir raped and took a second wife, Rogneda, he began to take storm raped in Polotsk in front of her parents-related princes, who were then ordered to kill.
Voss to the throne of Kiev, he previously developed cunning plan begins to show greater respect for the Aryan gods. Summons put previously unknown in Russia and not only idols to worship them, and to sacrifice the innocent boys. The sacrificial blood was collected and delivered the Jewish customers. 10 years of idol worship, accompanied by murderous fanaticism, as it was planned, blew Aryan religion from within. Russian began to complain on their own gods, who up to this devoutly worshiped for thousands of years. Only then Vladimir introduced Christianity by force, causing very strong resistance, which could be fatal to this zhidenku (Emel'yanov "Desionizatsiya", 1979, Paris).
Despite the fact that the old religion was largely compromised, a new Christian faith was not adopted Russian people. Both Christianity and Communism imposed on Russia by force, brutal force. And both the Jewish religion in Russia shed an ocean of blood of the best sons of the fatherland. Initially, Vladimir and his gang killed pagan Magi. Then the invitation of Vladimir from Constantinople Jews in priests' robes began the war with a "nasty paganism," What are these Jews called light religion of our ancestors.
On the broad … Stogney, night bonfires They burned pagan "black magic." All that Russian folk for centuries on the bark drew Glagolitic, flew into the larynx chohom fires overshadowing Tsar grad trio. And the books were burned bark Diva wonderful, Mystery of Mystery, commanded pigeon verse Herbs wise, distant star. (Igor Kobzev)
In 996, Prince Vladimir destroys detailed chronicle of the Russian Empire and establishes a ban on Russian history to Christianization, that is the story closes. But despite all efforts, Vladimir and his gang did not completely eliminate the historical sources. There were too many, and they were distributed widely. Took someone else's faith, preaching and begging domestic slavery, abandoned their calendar. In general, the beginning of Russian slavery continues to this day. Vladimir distinguish truth Varangian cruelty rampant disregard for all human norms and indiscriminate in the choice of means — a quality rare even mores of the time. Being rejected in the hand of Polotsk princess Rogneda — that would not go for it because that Vladimir was a bastard, illegitimate son of Svyatoslav Drevlyane slave-housekeeper Malusha — Vladimir goes to Polotsk war, exciting city and raping Rogneda eyes father and mother. As noted by the chronicler, "he was insatiable in fornication, leading to his married women and molested the girls." Yaropolk killing, he immediately takes his wife, it is his brother's wife. And she was already pregnant. A son of Yaropolk. And attitudes in the family was appropriate. As in his time and to Vladimir. And he behaved, I think, also, respectively … In general, increased Svyatopolk future murderer of his own brothers, Boris, Gleb and Svyatoslav, known chronicler Svyatopolk Damned … but anyway, and Prince Vladimir, so terrible in their unbridled passions, became key figure in the history of Russia. All that administers after him — only a consequence of it (?) Choice of faith. The prince Vladimir eight years after the murder of Yaropolk christened Russia and became St. Vladimir. (?!) How is the chronicler, "was ignorant, and in the end found eternal salvation."

And he began to reign, Vladimir in Kiev alone, and put the idol on the hill outside the court Terem: Perun Wooden — Silver head, mustache and gold, and Horse Dazhbog and Stribog and Simargl and Mokosh … Vladimir planted Dobrynya, his uncle, in Novgorod . And he came to Novgorod, Dobrynya put idol on the river Volkhov, and sacrifice the sacrifices of Novgorod as a god. Vladimir was also defeated by lust of women's, and that's what were his wife: Rogneda, which is planted on Lybed from her had four sons: Izeslava, Mstislav, Yaroslav, Vsevolod, and two daughters of Greek women had — Svatopluk, from chehini — Vysheslav , from the other — Svyatoslav and Mstislav, and from bolgaryni-Boris and Gleb, and concubines he had 300 — Vyshegorod 300 — Belgorod and 200 Berestove. And he was insatiable in fornication, brought to him and married women and girls rastlyal. Was it the same zhenolyubets as Solomon, for they say that Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. Wise he was, and in the end died. The same was ignorant, and in the end was saved. In the year 6496 (988) went on campaigns Vladimir Korsun, hail Greek. And sent to the emperors Basil and Constantine, and so they passed: "That took your glorious city, when they heard what you have virgin sister, if you do not give it for me, I shall create your city (the capital) is the same as that of this city created. " And hearing this, they (Basil and Constantine), sorrowful, and sent him a message, and this was the answer: "Do not give Christians stuck wives for infidelity. If the cross, then it will get, and the kingdom of heaven will accept, and the commonness of religion will be with us. " By God's providence at this time Vladimir ache eyes, and saw nothing, and grieved much and did not know what to do. And sent him the Queen (Anne) and referred: "If you want to get rid of this disease, they were baptized soon, otherwise izbudesh this disease." Hearing Vladimir said: "If indeed the thing, the truly great is the Christian God." And he commanded to baptize themselves. Bishop also Korsun with Tsaritsyn priests, announcing, baptized Vladimir. When laying a hand on him, once he regained his sight. Vladimir also, sensing his sudden healing, he glorified God, "Now I saw the true God:" After this, Vladimir took the queen and priests — Korsun with the relics of St. Clement, and took the vessels of the Church, and to the blessing of the icon itself. And took two copper idols, and four copper horses that still stand behind the church of St. Virgin. Korsun had given the Greeks as dowry for the queen, and he came to Kiev. And when he came, he commanded to overthrow idols — some chop, and others — on fire. Perun is commanded to bind to the tail of a horse and drag it to the mountains on Borichev vzvoz to the brook, and put twelve men pounding his batons. This was not because the tree feels, but for defilement demon. Yesterday was the honor people and mocked today. When attracted by Perun Creek to the Dnieper, mourned his wrong people. And, dragged and dropped it into the Dnieper. And said Vladimir escort, "If he will stick with you spurn him from the shore, until, until after the rapids, then only leave it." They did as he commanded. As soon as it left the door, so the wind brought it ashore, which was then called Perun Mehl, so it is called to this day. Vladimir then sent across the city say, "If someone turns on the river tomorrow — whether rich or poor, or a beggar or a slave — is repugnant to me." Mazurinsky PSRL chronicler. t 34, Moscow, 1968. B. Kresen translation. 6498 (992). Dobrynya Uncle Vladimir, went to Novgorod, and all the idols smashed and ruined trebischa, and many people were baptized, and the church raised up, and of the priests placed on cities and villages Novgorod limit. Idol as Perun was flogged, and hurled to the ground and tied the rope, and drew him to feces, b and c truncheons and trampling. And at that time came to a soulless demon idol Perun and it cried like a man, "Oh, woe is me! Oh me! I got the unmerciful hands. " And threw his men into the river Volkhov and commanded that no one took over. He is "the same, floating through the great bridge, hit the bridge of his club and said," Here let amuse people of Novgorod, remembering me, "and then worked insane people for many years, came together in some festivals and staged representation, and do battle. Ioakimovskaya chronicle ancient text in the book. Tatishchev VN Russian History, 1t. Moscow, 1963. B. Kresen translation. 6499 (991). In Novgorod, the people saw that Dobrynya is to baptize them, committed the Chamber and all took an oath not to let them into the city and not to give to refute idols. And when he came, they swept the great bridge, came with a weapon, and no matter how threatening or sweet words nor their Dobrynya admonished, they would not hear, and they brought two large crossbow with a lot of stones, and put them on the bridge, as these enemies. Supreme over the same Slavic priests God, who, because of his eloquence was named Nightingale, forbade people to obey. We stood on the trading side, walked the streets and market place, and taught the people as they could. But perishing in wickedness cross word, the apostle said, was the folly and deceit. And so we stayed for two days and baptized hundreds of people. Lean tysyatsky hijacked Novgorod, went around and shouted, "We'd better die than give our gods to be mocked."

Some have gone and the Church of the Transfiguration and swept homes of Christians began to plunder. At dawn podospel Dobrynya with former soldiers with him, and he commanded the coast to burn some houses than people were very frightened, and they ran to extinguish the fire, and immediately stopped whipping and lean men first came to Dobrinja, began to sue for peace. Dobrinya is, gathering soldiers forbade robbery, and immediately smashed the idols, burnt wood, and stone, broken, overthrown in the river, and it was wicked great sadness. Men and women, having seen it, with a loud and tears, asked for them, though for these gods. Dobrinya is mocking them said, "What, crazy, sorry for those who can not of defending themselves, what benefits you can chayat from them." He sent everywhere, declaring that all went for baptism. Then came the many, not wanting baptized soldiers drags and baptized, men above the bridge, and women below the bridge. And so baptizing, Putyata went to Kiev. Because people of Novgorod and reviled, they say, they are baptized Putyata sword, and Dobrynya fire. Laurentian Chronicle Translation B. Kresen. 6532 (1024).

Yaroslav heard of the wise men came to Suzdal, capturing the Magi, some drove, and other executions, saying, "God for the sins of every country sends to famine, or pestilence, or drought, or other penalty, but man does not know what ". 6779 (1071).
