Abel, a famous monk, nicknamed "Prophetic", predicted the fall of the Romanov dynasty, is still a very mysterious person. As he made his prediction, and, most importantly, what remains unknown to us, the descendants? Russia expects a bright future, or …
Abel vmiru Vasily Vasilyev, was born in 1757 in the village of Tula Akulovo, family farrier. At 19 he left home nine years wandering throughout Russia great, and the fall 1785 humbly asked the abbot of the Valaam Monastery allow him to live in the monastery. After living for a year in a monastery, asked permission from Abel Nazaire good abbot abbot "in the desert", he settled as a hermit in the monastery.
Abel was overcome various trials in the monastery, and in the 30 years after the mysterious vision, he received the gift of prophecy, and set out on a new journey "I tell the mysteries of God and preach." Another 9 years, he wandered through the world, and finally stopped at St. Nicholas Monastery in Kostroma. In the monastery, he wrote the "Book of the wise, and wisdom, it is written about the royal family." Abbot was seriously scared and immediately sent Abel with his book in Kostroma, the spiritual consistory.
Archbishop Paul was even more scared abbot — because it says in the book that "the Empress Catherine II will soon be deprived of this life and death happen to her sudden." Predictor in chains, away from sin, under strict guard was sent to St. Petersburg.
In St. Petersburg, the interrogations Abel humbly replied the Procurator Samoilov, "taught me to write this book, Who created the heavens and the earth, and all others like them …". Samoilov particularly interested in two questions: "Question 1. How dare you say in your book, like a would pade Emperor Peter III of his wife? Question 2. What is in the book of their words that are of particular concern and that Her Majesty, Akiba on nude son will rise and so on, and how you razumel them? "What seer humbly answered:" This is what God has revealed to me. "Was reported to the Empress. But she could not bear mysticism, to meet with the Prophet did not want to and ordered to imprison him forever Schlisselburg fortress.
10 months and 10 days, held prisoner in a secret chamber — to the death of the Empress. In the dungeon, he learned the news convulsed Russia, of which he had long had knowledge: November 6, 1796, at 9:00 am, died suddenly Empress Catherine II. Exactly to the day, as predicted by the prophetic monk.
Emperor Paul I, ascended to the throne, immediately called Abel. Removing the close, Paul "with fear and great joy," asked to bless his reign, as well as Abel asked "what will happen to him? '" Life "is silent about the response of Abel. Perhaps having learned from bitter experience, and not wanting to go back to the dungeon, Abel something silent, because Paul Abel ordered to settle in the Alexander Nevsky Monastery and give him whatever it takes.
After living for a year in Laurel, Abel did not calm down, went back to Valaam, where he wrote a new book, "similar to the first and more important." Re scared Abbot reported in St. Petersburg. The book was delivered to Paul I. It contained a prophecy of impending violent death of Pavel's what a personal interview or a monk wisely said nothing, or he has not had a revelation. Specify exact time of death, even the emperor. Angered by Paul May 12, 1800 g.velel hone unfortunate Abel in the Peter and Paul fortress, Alexis Ravelin, where he once spent 10 months and 10 days — until Paul passed away suddenly "on strike." Emperor Alexander, ascended to the throne, he immediately sent the hapless prophet to Solovki.
But here, too restless monk could not calm down. In 1802. Solovki Abel wrote a third book, "it is written, as will be taken in Moscow that year." It states in 1812 and predicted the burning of Moscow. Emperor Alexander did not believe Abel ordered to put a mad monk in the monastery prison, promising that he would sit there for as long as it fulfilled the prophecy.
10 years and 9 months sat Abel in great monastic prison. To the prisoner was treated mercilessly, and two of them died of cold, hunger and carbon smoke, good Abel, occurred for them to stand up, to tighten to the point that he "was ten times by death, a hundred times despaired."
When Napoleon captured Moscow, Alexander recalled Abel. Solovetsky abbot received the order, if the prisoner is still alive, immediately send it to St. Petersburg. Despite the apparent resistance of the Abbot, Abel still taken to the capital, where he talked with recalcitrant monk chief procurator of the Synod A.N.Golitsyn. The conversation was long, its exact content, no one knows, because they talked face to face. According to the testimony of the monk, he told the prince, "all from the beginning to the end." Heard in the "secret answers" prophetic predictions monk rumored fate of rulers to end the centuries, until the arrival of the Antichrist, the prince was terrified and afraid to introduce Monk Emperor. After a conversation with Prince Golitsyn Abel left alone, and he himself lost his taste for the soothsayer predictions. "I now put the best to know nothing, though, and know so silent," replied the monk his patron Countess Potemkin.
All subsequent years Abel traveled, avoiding settled monastic life. He visited the Greek Mount Athos, in Constantinople, Constantinople, Jerusalem. He was welcomed, in Moscow, in the Trinity-Sergius Lavra, who considered him a prophet, who is a charlatan. "Many of my friends have seen him and talked with him, he was a simple man, but without any information and gloomy, many ladies, honoring a saint, went to him and asked about the husbands of their daughters, and he answered that he was not a visionary, and that he then only predict when inspiration was told to tell him. Since 1820 more than no one has seen it, and no one knows where he is to go "- wrote L.N.Engelgardt in his" Memoirs. "
N.P.Rozanov traced the documents the fate of Abel. In 1823, he was placed in Vysotsky monastery, but a few months after the death of Emperor Alexander Abel quietly disappeared from the monastery, as "Father Archimandrite false decree wanted to send to St. Petersburg for a new emperor" — perhaps Abel again wrote a new prophecy, and this scared Rector. One way or another, the new emperor, Nicholas, familiarized with the case of Abel ordered imprison him in a prison office in Suzdal St. Euthymius Monastery, the main church prison. There's a cell-gate was completed in 1841, "Life and suffering," the monk Abel.
In 1875, in the magazine "Russian Antiquity» (№ 2) was published "The Life and suffering father and monk Abel," written by him in the early XIX century, 20 years before his death. At the beginning of "The Life" was set forth the most important prediction of the monk on that in 1842. come down to earth by God's grace and the "reign … all ye elect him, all ye his saints. And protsarstvuyut with him a thousand and fifty years, and is at the time of the whole earth may be one flock and shepherd them unique … then a vozstanut dead and the living will be updated, and will be all solution to all division: who will rise to eternal life, and the life immortal and that surrender to death and corruption, and eternal damnation. " It will happen in 2892.
Unfortunately, this prediction has not come true, and the grace of God on earth has come! Do not come to us and they made up seditious books, except for two, "Genesis" and "The Life and suffering father and monk Abel." Neither in the one nor in the other prophecies of the book are present but have come true at the time. But, in the descriptions of contemporaries in other books was presented story of the fall of the Romanovs and even something relevant to our time. Still, we were contemporaries.
