The paper is based on available sources and deals with Nicholas Avtonomov's biography which has not been widely known so far. N.P. Avtonomov (1889-1979) is regarded as an ecclesiastical adventurer and turncoat. During the period of Stalin's repression and the Great Patriotic War he made advantage of his ecclesiastical service to cooperate with the NKVD and the Gestapo. N. Avtonomov left a mark in the history of the Renovationist schism, the postwar history of Russian emigration and the history of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad. The paper focuses both on his ecclesiastical career and his personality.
