In reading the German wikipedia article on him, it seems that Bishop Agapit does not have Czech nationality as is stated here.  The German article goes on to explain that Bishop Agapit's paternal grandfather was Czech and moved to Russia, settled there, and the family has been there ever since, therefore explaining the Czech name but Russian nationality.  I've been to several other pages though, and can't seem to find anything that would support or disprove either in English or German.  However, even though it is a Wiki article, I am inclined to believe it, since it doesn't just say "He's Russian" but gives an explanation for the confusion.

In reading the German wikipedia article on him, it seems that Bishop Agapit does not have Czech nationality as is stated here. The German article goes on to explain that Bishop Agapit's paternal grandfather was Czech and moved to Russia, settled there, and the family has been there ever since, therefore explaining the Czech name but Russian nationality. I've been to several other pages though, and can't seem to find anything that would support or disprove either in English or German. However, even though it is a Wiki article, I am inclined to believe it, since it doesn't just say "He's Russian" but gives an explanation for the confusion. Katjuscha 12:37, July 15, 2009 (UTC)
