In the first year of her reign, Catherine confiscated the property of the Orthodox monasteries. If she could strike with impunity directly at the power of the Church, she certainly did not have to answer to the Church about her attitude toward Georgians and Armenians. Even when the Church had been stronger, it traditionally emphasized the need to protect Russian Orthodoxy from foreign contamination rather than advocating increased contact of any sort with foreign Christendom.
