on January, 31st 97 years would be executed by Vange. About the well-known Bulgarian clairvoyant many books and articles are written. But very few people knows, as on Smolenshchine too there was the Vanga - Anastas Vjazemsky`s who has foretold the beginning of the Great Patriotic War and exod of Stalingradsky fight the beata.

the Madwoman sacred

Unfortunately, authentic documents on Anastasii Filippovne Filippovoj, or as it named in the people, Nastenke, was saved a little. According to the certificate on death, she has died on May, 27th, 1959, having lived 117 years.

Was born clairvoyant in village Minino of Velikopolsky volost of Vjazemsky district. Nastju considered as the feeble-minded child. Inhabitants remember, how small Nastja together with the mother went to beg on villages. Relatives from the next villages never started up it in the house - spent the night jurodivaja in a drying house.

After Anastas`s revolution has gone to work on match factory which settled down in Ioanno - Predtechevom a man`s monastery.

During lifetime of Nastenka was famous as the national clairvoyant. Even vjazmichi and inhabitants of neighbouring villages in secret came to a time of darkness and stagnation of Stalin reprisals to it behind the help. For the predictions the beata never took money. For a good advice the Ice crust brought gifts - sweet and clothes.      

Remember that jurodivaja went on a city with a bag on a back and with the small black doggie. Something mysterious was in this high black-eyed and dark-haired woman, - the inhabitant of Vyazma Petrov`s Anna remembered in the letter to abbot Arcady. - Nastja carried a sundress and a shirt with the embroidered sleeves. On a chest at it the icon of God`s Mother " hung;.

the Vjazemsky beata spontaneously told the fortunes time and again of townsmen. Petrov`s Anna writes further: When I was still the little girl, in the street have met Nastenku. It stood near the Ilinsky monastery and could not lift the bags. I have tried to help it, but jurodivaja began to swear on me. And then she has told that I in church will soon read psalms. After more than ten years the prediction has come true. I became psalomshchitsej the Troitsk cathedral.

There was one more case on my memory. My mum, Eudoxia, has met the beata in the market. Nastja it has greeted and says that it is time to buy meal: houses are there is nothing. It is necessary to tell that we had a big economy: a pig and a cow. Therefore food sufficed. Eudoxia has not listened to Nastju and has gone home. And houses - the pig has died of an inflammation, and in some days - a cow .

As narrates in the book Anastas Vjazemsky`s Beata. The biography on memoirs of contemporaries abbot Arcady, hearings about tselitelskom gift of the foreteller have extended in due time far beyond area. Old residents tell that to pre-war time to it behind the help there came even one of the Kremlin workers (a name it to establish and it was not possible).

and this has got drunk tea

In the people the well-known legend about a prediction Nastenkoj of the Second World War goes.

The day before 22 - go June Nastja without demand came into houses and shouted: Set the table, for visitors we wait! . Inhabitants did not give to an allegory of the beata special value: a leah a little that can tell the madwoman. In some days war has begun.

Shortly before Stalingradsky fight people have asked the beata to foretell, who will defeat war. set the table, visitors we will meet - the foreteller has told. Then Nastja from walls has made photos and began to name their names of governors: Stalin, Roosevelt, Churchill, Hitler. With a lemon the beata has put tea to Stalin photos; honey with jam and sugar - to Roosevelt and to Churchill . And about a portrait designating Hitler Nastja has turned a cup. this has got drunk, is not present to it to more tea - the beata has angrily told.                      

Anastas has endured the Great Patriotic War. Has died silently. On memoirs of contemporaries, in the evening on May, 27th, 1959 Nastenka has laid down on a floor and has imposed itself with icons. So it also has departed in the world other.


the Tomb of the beata Anastass is in an iconostas on vjazemskom the Ekaterina`s cemetery. Among inhabitants is povere that the tomb possesses salutary properties.          

Now ministers vjazemskogo Piously - the Troitsk cathedral collect data on life of Nastenki for its reckoning to a community of Saints. Old residents of a city help with a noble cause and local newspapers. To canonise beata Nastenku uneasy business, - father Valery tells. - among inhabitants many hearings about miracles of the beata go. But for its canonization it is required to collect all certificates on miracles and life of the beata and to give on court to the Patriarch .
