Saint martyr Hermogenes, Bishop of Tobolsk and Siberia (Russian: священномученик Гермоген, епископ Тобольский и Сибирский, born Georgiy Yefremovich Dolganyov (Георгий Ефремович Долганёв); 1858–1918) was a prominent Russian Orthodox religious figure. Influenced by Nicanor, Bishop of Kherson, he chose the Orthodox ministry after finishing the Novorossiysk University. Following his education in Saint Petersburg Theological Seminary in 1892, Dolganyov accepted the name Hermogenes. In 1893 he became the inspector of the Tiflis Theological Seminary in Tbilisi, and in 1898 - its dean. In this capacity Hermogenes was responsible for expelling one of Seminary's most famous students, Joseph Dzhugashvili (Joseph Stalin). In 1903 he became the Bishop of Saratov and Tsaritsyno. Hermogenes founded the Annunciation Convent and Saint Trinity Monastery in Khvalynsk, Volsk Town Church of Annunciation and several other institutions. In the end of 1911 Hermogenes has came into conflict with the Holy Synod, opposing the introduction of funeral service for adherents of other faiths and the order of female deacons.
