Аbstract. The paper shows the impact of the Battle of Stalingrad in the revival of Orthodoxy in the Lower Volga and the Don, a comparison of the reconstruction process in the dioceses of the region; its characteristics are revealed in Stalingrad, Saratov, Astrakhan and Rostov regions. The author comes to the conclusion that the battle of Stalingrad was the catalyst recovery Orthodoxy in the province. The pace of discovery of temples was higher in the occupied areas of the Rostov and Stalingrad areas than in front-line areas. Imbalance in the number of active parishes continued to persist after the end of the Battle of Stalingrad. Church patriotic charity in 1942–1943 was the most active in the Saratov and Stalingrad diocese.

Key words: Orthodox revival, the Russian Orthodox Church, Diocese of the Lower Volga and the Don, missionary work is the Romanian Orthodox Church, a church charity.
