Saint Tikhon of Moscow was a patriarch of Moscow in the beginning of the Soviet Union. His name, before he became a saint, was Vasily Ivanovich Bellavin(Russian: Василий Иванович Беллавин). He was canonized by the Synod of Bishops. It is possible that the character of the elder Zosimov in the Russian novel The Brothers Karamazov was influenced by him.
