The Hieromartyr Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Hermogenes played special role at the beginning of 17th century in uniting the Russian people during the Time of Troubles. Patriarch Hermogenes was one of the leading and brightest figures in Russia’s history, who through his personal example, bravery and resistance inspired the people to great deeds.

The monument built in a project by national artist of Russia, Salavat Shcherbakov, was unveiled on May 25, 2013 at the walls of Moscow Kremlin for the 100th anniversary of the glorification of Hermogenes of Moscow among the saints. The ceremony was attended by Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia.
