Question : [Ques] Which world leader once trained to become a priest?
Joseph Stalin was the supreme ruler of the Soviet Union for a quarter of a century. Stalin’s real name was Josef Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, but changed his last name to Stalin, which, in Russian, means “made of steel.” His mother was a devout Russian Orthodox Christian, and wanted him to become a priest. As a teen, he earned a scholarship to attend a seminary where he studied for the priesthood in the Georgian Orthodox Church. In 1899, he was expelled from the seminary for missing exams, although he claimed it was due to his political views.
