Temple of Trinity in Listy.
Sretenka, 27/29

It was constructed in 1651-1661
A cemetery church on this place was mentioned in 1635. In 1651-1667 streletses - soldiers of regular Russian army - were lodged here. They constructed on a place of wooden church a stone temple. For participation in suppression of cossacks revolt and Yemelyan Pugachev's capture, tsar Alexey Mihailovich welcomed to them a brick on construction of a temple, images and church utensils. After the campaign (1677-1678) which defined an outcome of Russian- Turkish war, a throne of Cover of the Virgin was erected. It was consecrated in 1680. After the Azov campaign a belltower was constructed .
The name " Listy - in Sheets " was given on basten pictures which were made by printers living close. They sold pictures near the church, hanging them out on a fencing.
A fire happened In 1689 in church. Therefore the temple suffered - its chapter bursted. Streletses participated in capture of rebel Feodor Shaklovity, for what young tsar Peter Alekseevich gave them money for repair of church.
