Golubinsky entered the Moscow Academy of Kostroma seminary in 1854 and in 1861 became her bachelor - at a time when the spiritual atmosphere we were overrun with plans and a thirst for renewal. This rise is undoubtedly fertilized minds and hearts crammed large desires. Hence, even in his early youth Golubinsky building plan to write the history of the Church full freedom. Hence, too, his conclusions daring and courageous handling of the material. But if the time gave something to the historian, what gave him the school? In terms of spiritual and academic work one is forced to go alone, alone. From this unavoidable harmful in the scientific sense of the skills and, in any case, angularity, from which can save only their control school. Golubinsky walked all the academies, with the difference, however, that he deliberately eliminated from the influences of the scientific literature and brought her to the utmost privacy. However, it would be unfair to forget about a powerful influence on him. It came from AV Gorsky. This ascetic scientist, brave, but crumpled Filaretovskiy regime researcher, an excellent builder of the Moscow Theological Academy, was able to pull himself around talents. Among them (along with Kliuchevsky) and was Golubinsky. In Gorski Golubinsky seen as a historian of the Russian Church must know the Greek language, and really knew him, he spoke by new Greek and the old read quite fluently. Perhaps Golubinsky determination to go on a business trip to the Greek East was inspired by Gorsky (1872 - 1873). This trip gave Golubinskaya benefits, which until now has no historian of the Russian Church. Or the pre-Mongol period in Kiev this story in Russian sources witnessed weak and pale. Golubinsky decrypt many do not speak on their own news and notes with the help of information on orders and customs of the Byzantine church. The history of management, the history of monasticism and other sections are written as nobody except Golubinsky, with his excellent knowledge of the history of Byzantium, could not write. Man colossal scholarship Golubinsky at the same time different children`s directness in life, and scientific judgments. He always said only that the said documents. From its bold construction and management of popular legends (of St. Andrew, Prince Vladimir and pr.), as well as quite unusual in a church environment reviews of the pillars of our church. In the eyes of the student body is created Golubinskaya extraordinary popularity. In general, almost silence his voice was sharp and made him a hero. However Kliuchevsky, Lebedev and some other Golubinsky maintained in confidence of youth, she learns not to theological poorhouse, and in this school. However, the attentive audience at Golubinsky was not. The lecturer was bad. All his energy he expended in the study on the establishment of research that will never die in his name. The first work was his Golubinsky Course work: "On the way of acting of Orthodox sovereigns in the Greco-Roman IV, V and VI centuries to the Church against heretics and schismatics" (1859). As the best student work, an essay to be submitted to Metropolitan Filaret. Therefore, AV Gorsky himself wrote the preface, and made corrections to taste Filaret: "wherever police found the eloquence of beneficence measures against heretics and schismatics, it belongs to the Mountain." In 1867 he graduated from the study, "Constantine and Methodius, apostles of the Slav." In the manuscript work it was presented to the Academy of Sciences and on the basis of reviews Sreznevsky awarded full Uvarov Prize, but due to censorship still remains unpublished. In 1871 came "A Short History of the Orthodox Church - Bulgarian, Serbian and Romanian", hitherto not antikvirovanny. After a trip to the East Golubinsky given to the work on the history of the first volume of which in two huge books came out in 1880. As it is strange, but the first-class research is not seen to light if the aid did not come Golubinskaya Metropolitan Macarius Bulgakov. For the printing of the book the author had no money and he had asked for a loan to his opponent, who at that time had already issued several volumes of his "History of the Russian Church." Macarius knew Golubinsky work negates his newly printed volume, but with a big heart big man caressed Golubinsky and gave him the money. This attitude of Metropolitan opened the book further road. The author received his doctorate and was approved by the Synod of the degree, in spite of the Review-denunciation chairman of the school committee, Archpriest Parvova. But soon Makarios died and left Golubinsky defenseless. In 1883 Pobedonostsev banned publication addresses him by the professors on the occasion of the 25th anniversary. The first half of the 2nd volume of stories could appear vsvet only after twenty years - in 1900, thanks to the assistance of the Company Russian History and Antiquities. This same company reprinted, and both halves of the first volume in 1900 and 1904 in the revised form. Brewing liberation movement. Even Pobedonostsev began to change their attitude in Golubinskaya. Representing the ability to print and the 2nd half of the 2nd volume of the "History", which was written twenty years ago, but has not been completed. However, the work so many years lying in a drawer, demanded alterations to which the 70-year old man was not strong enough. At the moment it is printed as a posthumous work in the "Readings of Society of History and Antiquities." In 1902 Golubinsky was elected to the Academy of Sciences. But at this time it has become too strong for old age. In 1906 he finally lost his sight. His last work, which he saw with his own eyes, was an atlas to his stories printed in 1906. Among other works Golubinsky should be called: "The history of Russian canonization of saints", two editions in 1894 and 1903`s; "To our debate with the Old Believers", two editions in 1892 and 1905`s, "St. Sergius of Radonezh", two editions, in 1892 and 1909. - See the obituary in the January book "Theological Journal", 1912 .;.
