Abstract
The article is based mainly on the material of investigative cases against Catholics in Soviet Russia and gives an outline of the activities of Bishop Pius Eugene Neve, who for 10 years served as an unofficial representative of the Vatican in Moscow. His correspondence was an important source of information on what is happening in the USSR for the Pope’s throne. All this time the Bishop Neve was under close surveillance of the Soviet punitive organs, who fabricating the case against his entourage, collected compromising materials against the bishop himself. From 1927 to 1936 years 10 group investigation cases were instigated, in which the name Bishop Neve somehow figured. These were cases against representatives of the Catholic clergy, Polish, German and Russian by nationality, and both Latin and Byzantine rites, in particular, against the nephew of the philosopher V. S. Solov’ev fr. Sergius Solovyov, as well as against Catholic nuns. The materials presented in the article allows to reconstruct both the circle of acquaintances of the Catholic prelate and the nature of his activity, as well as the methods of work of the Soviet punitive organs.
