Archimandrite Innokentiy Gizel.

Innokenty Gizel ((Russian): Иннокентий Гизель; ca.1600 - November 18, 1683) was a Prussian-born Russian historian, writer, political and ecclesiastic figure, who had adopted Orthodox Christianity.

Innokentiy Gizel was a rector of the Kiev Theological Academy. In 1656, he was appointed Archmandrite of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra.

Innokentiy Gizel is known to have supported the unification of Ukraine and Russia and the autonomy of the Ukrainian clergy, simultaneously. He is generally credited for writing the Kievan Synopsis in 1674, but some researchers deny his authorship.
