History

The eparchy was established in 1672 and included, in addition to the city of Nizhny Novgorod, the towns of Alatyr, Kurmysh, and Yadrin. The first hierarch of the eparchy was Archimandrite Filaret, who had been abbot of Pechersky Ascension Monastery in Nizhny Novgorod, The ruling hierarchs initially received the title of Metropolitan of Nizhny Novgorod and Alatyr. Through the centuries the rank of the ruling hierarch of the eparchy has changed, being variously metropolitan, archbishop, and bishop. In 1799, the title of the hierarch became '...of Nizhny Novgorod and Arzamas', and the territory of the Eparchy of Nizhny Novgorod coincided with the Nizhny Novgorod province.
