Hello all. I have a question. Let's assume there isn't a Second World War for whatever reason ranging from the Weimar Republic surviving to the Nazis stopping after Munich. Without the Eastern Front forcing the Soviet government to reconcile with the Moscow Patriarchate. This led to the reopening various seminaries, monasteries, and churches for a short time. However, without the rampaging Nazi hordes does Stalin reconcile with them? Do the Soviets continue with their "Living Church" policies? If so, I could see a form of de-Stalinization trying to co-opt the Patriarchate if the post-Stalin leadership was so inclined.
