Grigori Rasputin, born 150 years ago, has remained a fascinating, if controversial figure. A peasant and lay-Elder, he established a reputation as a spiritual guide, endowed with the gift of healing. This recommended him to the last Imperial Family of Russia, as he was seen as the only hope for the Tsarevich Alexei, a haemophiliac. However, in the eyes of many contemporaries he was as an evil and destructive influence.
