Gapon, Father. Georgi Apollonovich Gapon (1870-1906) was a Russian Orthodox priest and leader of the workers during the Russian Revolution of 1905. In 1905 he was the hero of the German Celebrity Pulp Pope Gapon, der Held der Freiheit #1-?, and in 1917 he appeared in a film.

The fictional Father Gapon’s life follows a similar but more adventure-filled trajectory as his real-life counterpart.
