Description The text focuses on Russian Orthodox priest Nikolay Nikolayevich Ryzhkov, who was appointed to work in Czech Orthodox churches at the beginning of the 20th century. During that period, many people in the Czech lands converted to Orthodoxy and Ryzhkov was one of the leading organizers of Orthodox life. His activities were cruelly punished when he was accused of plotting against Austria, and he was found guilty of Panslavic propaganda amongst Czechs by a court in Vienna. He was also accused of organizing and inciting steps leading to intervening with the unity and security of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The aim of the test is to introduce the circumstances of the trial and to analyse the press of the period and its reaction to the arrest and the process. The article is based on the following journals: Čas (Time), Čech (Czech), Moravská orlice (Moravian Eagle), Národní listy (National Papers) and Venkov (Countryside) issued between 1914 and 1930 and Josef Holeček’s article Ještě jeden válečný mučedník (One More War Martyr).
