As the seat of the Russian Or thodox faith, Moscow was known in Napoleon's time "the new Jerusalem." And on the eve of the Bolshevik revolu turn in 1917 there were 65 churches. Today, the Moscow patriarchate says only 45 Ortho- dox churches still have serv ices. Many churches, come of them priceless monuments of Russiai architecture, were destroyec under Stalin and NiMta Khrush chev. Others were turned into museums, aquariums, movie theatres, clubs, furniture facto- ries, laboratories, offices or apartments. Still others were simply abandoned to rot.
