Tyminsky, Taras

Tyminsky, Taras [Тимінський, Тарас; Tymins'kyj; monastic name: Тит; Tyt], b 24 April 1858 in Piadykivtsi, Bukovyna, d 27 February 1927 in Roztoky, Bukovyna. Church and community activist; brother of Ivan Tyminsky. He studied philosophy at Lviv University and theology at Chernivtsi University, and served as a parish priest in Bukovyna. Before the First World War he was a leading member of several Ukrainian organizations. He defended the rights of Ukrainians in the metropoly and criticized attempts to Romanianize the church, and contributed articles on church and community affairs to Dilo, Bukovyna, and the journal Candela. He also published a brochure criticizing the policies of the Romanian metropolitan. In 1917–18 the Austrian authorities planned to divide the Bukovynian metropoly into separate Ukrainian and Romanian eparchies. At this time Tyminsky was nominated to head the Ukrainian eparchy and made an archimandrite. With the establishment of Romanian control over Bukovyna in late 1918, the plan was abandoned, and Tyminsky was removed from his posts. He then retired from public life.
