Photos by Gilbert II. Grosvenor A PRIEST AND HIS WIFE: MOSCOW The Russian clergy are divided into two classes-the black priests and the white priests. The white clergy are the parochial priests and are allowed to marry-in fact, must marry-but only once, while the black clergy live in monasteries and are celibates. The bishops, arch bishops, and metropolitans must be widowers before they can be elected to these high positions.
