Know Russia: Ra-Ra-Rasputin

Hear about the weird and wicked Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin from Dr. MayaLisa Holzman. Rasputin, self-proclaimed holy man and mystic, lived from 1869-1916 and held the ear of Tsarina Alexandra, last Empress of Russia. 

This talk will focus on Rasputin's relationship with the royal court and his influence on the Romanovs in their last decade of rule. Dr. Holzman will present some of the mythology surrounding the Russian mystic and royal adviser, while also dismantling the apocryphal and implausible to show the role played by Rasputin in the Russian Empire's downfall.  6:00pm at the Downtown Bend Library.
