Leo TolstoyDeath

Leo Tolstoy dies age 82

20 Nov, 1910

Tolstoy dies of pneumonia in his home, surrounded by family. As he dies, friends attempt to redeem Tolstoy’s soul by reconciling with the church and adopting their teachings for his end. He refuses them all, due to principles of pacifism and asceticism that reject the teachings of the Church.

Even in the valley of the shadow of death, two and two do not make six.
