The monograph of S. E. Yalovitsyna «Lutherans in Karelia: Historical essays» (Petrozavodsk: IP Markov N. A., 2016. 216 p.) is reviewed. The book examines the main stages of the history of Lutherans in Karelia, which originated from the time of reforms of Peter the Great and due to emergence of a large number of Lutheran professionals, who formed a basis of the local communities. The author gives a high estimation of the work of S. E. Jalovitsyna, marking out extensive source base, clarity and reasonableness of the material, absence of significant factual errors. Special attention is given to the general idea of the monography, i. e. the evidence of the harmonious coexistence of representatives of different Christian denominations in Karelia, which can serve as a good example for our contemporaries.
