Metropolitan Eulogius (Georgievsky) of Paris (also rendered Evlogy and Eulogios) was a bishop of the Russian Orthodox diaspora during the tragic transition brought upon by the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Under his leadership, the Russian Orthodox Exarchate in Western Europe was established. During most of his episcopate, he served under the omophorion of the Ecumenical Patriarch. However, because he decided, along with the Metropolia (subsequently the Orthodox Church in America), to pursue autonomy from Moscow independently of the Karlovtsy Synod (ROCOR), his legacy is viewed as good or bad depending upon which jurisdiction is speaking. He was influential in founding the St. Sergius Orthodox Theological Institute (Paris, France), which in turn was formative in the life of the Orthodox Church in America and the founding of St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary (Crestwood, New York). Spiritually, one may count among his descendants Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, Protopresbyters Alexander Schmemann, Georges Florovsky, and John Meyendorff, Saint Mary Skobtsova.
