Description

These essays by Russian scholars represent an attempt to give meaning to the interaction of religious consciousness and culture. They represent an exposition of historical, theological, ecclesiastical, philosophical and moral problems from the point of view of the religious consciousness, a function which was the exclusive prerogative of the clergy, and consequently absent in scholarly literature of the Soviet period. The collection as a whole witnesses to the liberation of Christian thought in Russia. With an introduction by Natalia Pecherskaya, Director of the St Petersburg School of Religion and Philosophy. Essays include: "Sergei Bulgakov - His Life and His Reflections in It"; "A Case Study for the Churching of the Russian Intelligencia", A.M. Choufrine; "Christian Tradition and the Birth of the Concept of Patriotism in Russia", M.M. Krom; "On the Doctrine of the Church", V.A. Alymov; "The Word of the Church - On the Orthodox Exegesis", G.I. Benevich; "Theology on the Margins of Philosophy", A.G. Chernyakov; "Metaphysics in Dostoevsky's Poetics", O.M. Nogovitsyn.
