Born on June 13, 1952 in Yaroslavl, his mother was a teacher, father was a worker. He spent his childhood in Rostov and Yaroslavl. From adolescence, he took an interest in Russian Orthodox Church and studied church literature collected by his grandfather. In 1969 he graduated from high school and entered the Leningrad Chemical and Pharmaceutical Institute.
In 1973-1974 he did military service in the ranks of the Soviet armed forces. In 1975 he took monastic vows with the name Alexander and was ordained a hierodeacon by Bishop Anthony (Zavgorodniy) of Stavropol and Baku. On December 19 of the same year he was ordained a hieromonk and sent to serve in the Stavropol diocese. He later graduated from the Moscow Theological Seminary in absentia.
For four years he was rector of the Dormition Church in the city of Mozdok, where the Mozdok Icon of the Mother of God - especially revered in the Caucasus - is located. He served as dean of churches in North Ossetia and contributed to the return of the Church and the restoration of the Ascension Cathedral in the city of Alagir, the church in Vladikavkaz, St. Nicholas Cathedral and the Church of the Image of the Savior Not Made by Hands in the village of Pavlodolskaya. Furthermore he collected and studied materials on the history of Christianity in the Caucasus.
In 1988 he was elevated to the rank of archimandrite. He served in Dagestan and Azerbaijan. In 1995 he was appointed rector of the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Mother of God in Baku and dean of the Orthodox churches of Azerbaijan.
As Archbishop
On December 28, 1998, by the decision of the Holy Synod, he was elected Bishop of Baku and the Caspian Sea. He was named Bishop of Baku and the Caspian Sea on January 13, 1999, at the Yelokhovo Cathedral in Moscow. He was consecrated Bishop of Baku and the Caspian Sea the day after. The consecration was performed by the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy II, Metropolitan of Krutitsky and Kolomna Juvenal (Poyarkov), Metropolitan of Volokolamsk and Yuryevsky Pitirim (Nechaev), Archbishop of Solnechnogorsk Sergius (Fomin), Archbishop of Orenburg) Valentine Bronnitsky Tikhon (Emelyanov), Bishop of Orekhovo-Zuevsky Alexy (Frolov), Bishop of Krasnogorsk Sabbas (Volkov).
During his tenure destroyed churches were restored and new ones were built in Baku, Makhachkala, Kizlyar, Kaspiysk, Izberbash, Buinaksk and Derbent. He was a member of the Inter-Council Presence of the Russian Orthodox Church since July 27, 2009. On March 22, 2011, by the decision of the Holy Synod, due to the fact that Dagestan was transferred to the revived Vladikavkaz diocese, the title was changed to “Baku and Azerbaijan”. He was elevated to the rank of archbishop on July 18, 2012 by Patriarch Kirill.
He died on June 10, 2021 after a long illness in Baku, Azerbaijan.
