Church, religion and religiosity

The German emigrants to Russia belonged to different denominations. Most of them were Catholics, Protestants and Mennonites. Their religion has always impacted their lives in Russia decisively.

Nonetheless, only few details of the religious lives of Russian-Germans are known. In the Soviet Union, all religions had been ostracized for a long time. According to Soviet propaganda the Soviet citizens were atheists. That certainly   included the formerly known "Soviet Germans" as well.
