Grigory Zakharovich Eliseev (Russian: Григо́рий Заха́рович Елисе́ев, February 6 (January 25) 1821, v. Spasskoe, Tomsk, Russian Empire, - January 30 (18), 1891, Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire) was a Russian journalist, editor, and publisher.

Biography[edit]

He was best known for his work in Sovremennik magazine where, after the death of Nikolay Dobrolyubov and the arrest of Nikolay Chernyshevsky he was the leading figure in the mid-1860s.[1] Eliseev, using numerous pseudonyms (Grytsko being the best known), headed the "Domestic affairs review" department of Sovremennik and, according to B&EED was later regarded as the founder of this particular reviewing genre in Russian journalism. Eliseev, a respected religious scholar, was also the author of two profound studies on the history of early Christianity in the Kazan region.[2]
