Phrases On The Blackboard At Georgetown

When the Rev. Fr. Frank Fadner SJ, taught me Russian history at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service many years ago it was his habit to write key Russian words and phrases on the blackboard before each class. One pregnant phrase kept recurring down through the Russian centuries – smutnoe vremya - Смутное время -  "Time of Troubles."
