Mog(h)ila, Peter

Mog(h)ila, Peter/ Petr Mog(h)ila (1596–1646). Russian Orthodox theologian and metropolitan of Kiev. He became metropolitan (in 1633) at a time when many Ukrainians were attracted by Roman Catholicism. In some respects he seemed to concede ground to Roman Catholicism. But overall he defended Orthodoxy against both Catholicism and Protestantism. He wrote the Orthodox Confession of the Catholic and Apostolic Eastern Church, which was amended before it was endorsed in 1643 and at the Synod of Jerusalem in 1672. His own teaching he maintained in the Little Catechism.
