Short evocation of the Third All-Russia’s Muslim Congress held in Nizhny Novgorod on August 16-21, 1906, through its main resolutions, with biographies of its most prominent orators and participants. Basing her approach on a selection of primary sources emanating from the congress itself and from Russian authorities ― preserved notably in the regional archive of Nizhny Novgorod ―, the author underlines the discrepancy between the congress’ appeals to the unity of the Russia’s Muslims and the latter’s rapid division into a wide range of mutually opposed movements and tendencies, which deprived them of a real influence on the events of the following decade at the level of the empire.
