This dissertation project seeks to understand the origins, nature, and outcome of the astonishing mass conversion of more than 100, 000 Lutheran Estonian and Latvian peasants from the Lutheran to the Orthodox faith in imperial Russia's Livland province during the 1840s. I argue that peasant protest---conversions and claims made on the basis of Orthodox status---were shaped by tsarist policies and peasant interaction with Russian-speaking elites. In turn, mass religious conversion encouraged the intervention of the Russian state and the Orthodox Church into local affairs.The University of Washington Seattle, Washington 1 998 Fulbright Fellowship 2001 M.A. History, University of California, Los Angeles, California 200 1 -2002 Teaching Assistant Department of History, UCLA 2002- 2003 Fulbright-Hayesanbsp;...
