Diocese of Vologda and Veliky Ustyug (Russian: Вологодская и Великоустюжская епархия) is an eparchy of the Russian Orthodox Church.

History[edit]

Prior to the establishment of the Vologda diocese of north-western region of her was part of the Novgorod diocese, and the south and the east - in the Rostov diocese.[1] In 1492, the Archbishop of Novgorod Gennady gave the Perm diocese, Vologda, and the bishops were called Perm and Vologda. By order of the cathedral in 1589 the department was transferred to Vologda, and the bishops were called Vologda and Velikopermskimi.[2]

In the last decades of the eighteenth century the boundaries of dioceses have been aligned with the boundaries of the provinces. Several areas of the Vologda epaohii caught in Kostroma, Tver, Novgorod, Arkhangelsk Oblast, dioceses have moved accordingly.

Modern borders took shape after the formation of the diocese in 1937 and the restoration of the Vologda region in 1945 (after the Great Terror of 1937-1938) of the diocesan administration.
