Bishops’ Schools


class institutions of primary and secondary education for children of the clergy, which began in Russia in 1721 and were located in bishops’ houses (church administration buildings). The course of study consisted of religion, reading, writing, and in some schools also arithmetic, Latin, Greek, Old Church Slavonic, and Hebrew. After 1737 the bishops’ schools were gradually turned into seminaries.
