As an aside I am now convinced death occurred in the basement.

For more you will have to wait, but there is plenty in the previous posts on this topic.

Richard
I feel like one
Who treads alone
Some banquet-hall deserted,
Whose lights are fled,
Whose garlands dead,
And all, but he, departed!
Refrain:
Thus, in the stilly night,
Ere slumberís chain hath bound me,
Sad memíry brings the light
Of other days around me.

Thomas Moore 1815

I guess in a way the story of Rasputin's murder is like the tale of Anna Anderson. We will never know the entire truth of what happened since everyone is now dead. I do wonder about this fascinating subject. It must have been very interesting to have been at Felix's party that night!

I find the subjet of Rasputin fascinating. In high school, I was taught that he was evil. Just the prejudice of the teacher, now I am not sure what I think. He did have a lot of influence on Alexandra. But how far that influence actually extended is not clear to me. I hope this disucssion continues, I will learn more. One thing I wonder, what does the name Rasputin mean, if anything?
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow ---- What a ride!!!"

On Dec 29th 2003 some kind of memorial service, a "panikhida" was held for Rasputin. Incl. an icon of Rasputin.

Thanks for the picture Rudy3!
I resized and optimized your pictures, and here is the link if you want to modify your post, and post these links instead of the links you have.

and Ras. Icon:

Other then that, the picture of the "Tsar" Alexei is kind of disturbing to me, as he seemed so innocent to take on such a role. And, to point out the fact, they have him as a child holding the responsibility of the country.

What on Earth >:( >:( >:(
After turning a totally incompetent bunch of rulers into a holy family, are they now beatifying a schyzophrenic drunkard? I don't hate Rasputin. I don't admire him either. But if he qualifies for sainthood, then I must have missed something.

Yes, rather bizarre is it not ?  However, ANY dead person who was Orthodox may have a memorial service. Does not mean anyone is trying to make him a saint.

I'm reading The Rasputin File right now and in the first part,Radzinsky says:(quote)
"I went into the yard by the same doo which the bloodied Rasputin had fled,while trying to save himself."
-Edvard Radzinsky,THE RASPUTIN FILE,page 19,par.4

Ugh,I'd hope they aren't making him a saint,in my mind he isn't exactly the type to be canonized....
