His Eminence Mikhail (Voskresensky) of Kazan was Archbishop of the Diocese of Kazan and Mari of the Church of Russia from 1960 to 1975. He served many of his years as the ruling bishop during the persecutions of the Khrushchev era.
Little is known of the life of Archbishop Mikhail. He joined in the demands of some of the Russian hierarchy for reconsideration of the regulations concerning administration of Russian Orthodox Church that had been adopted under pressure of the secular authorities. The demands were presented, in 1961, in a letter by Abp. Hermogen (Golubev) of Tashkent and Central Asia that Abp. Mikhail signed together with six hierarchs who looked to the realization of reforms in the church.
