Abstract
Letters from representatives of the Vatican from Soviet Russia 1920s — 1930s. have a special historical value, because they describe not only the political, but also the religious situation in the country. This article contains fragments of letters from the Apostolic Administrator in Moscow Bishop Pius Eugene Neveu for 1927—1935, structured by us on a thematic principle. He drew information from newspapers and magazines and on the street, so in his letters one can find arguments about politics, about arrests and sufferings of the Catholics and the Orthodox in camps and prisons, about the state of the hierarchy of the Russian Orthodox Church, descriptions of the daily difficulties of Soviet Moscow, conversations, anecdotes and ditties, heard on the street. He conveys the material as he acquires it, not being able to compare different sources, and also to investigate the motives of certain actions of people.
