A Revolution of the spirit : crisis of value in Russia, 1890-1924

edited by Bernice Glatzer Rosenthal & Martha Bohachevsky-Chomiak ; translated by Marian Schwartz

The spiritual revival that is sweeping the Soviet Union today had its genesis in the religious renaissance of the early 20th century. In both cases, it was lay intellectuals, disenchanted with simplistic positivism and materialism, who adapted Russian orthodoxy to modern life. Their ideas reverberated, not only in religion and philosophy, but in art, literature, painting, theater and film. Banned by the Soviet government in 1922, the writings of the religious renaissance were rediscovered in the Brezhnev era by a new generation of Soviet intellectuals disillusioned with Marxism. Circulating from hand to hand in illegal typewritten editions (samizdat), they exerted an evergrowing influence on Soviet society, from the very top down to ordinary people. Under the new policy of glasnost, the government itself is currently reprinting their works. The selections included in this volume reflect the profundity and breadth of their thought and are presented in English for the first time. The recognition of the universal need and significance of spiritual values and ideals united this otherwise heterogeneous group and bears witness to the diversity of their approach to the basic issues of the human condition. The centrality of these lay intellectuals' concerns transcends the specifics of the historical situation in early 20th century Russia and makes their writings relevant to the universal human condition. In order of appearance, the selections are: Vladimir Solovyov, The Enemy from the East, The Russian National Ideal; Nikolai Grot, On the True Tasks of Philosophy; Sergei Diaghilev, Complex Questions; Vasilly V.Rozanov, On Sweetest Jesus and the Bitter Fruits of the World; Nikolai Berdiaev, Socialism as Religion; Sergei Bulgakov, An Urgent Task; Viachislav Ivanov, Crisis of Individualism, GeorgII Chulkov, On Mystical Anarchism; Dmitri S. Merezhkovsky, Revolution and Religion, The Jewish Question As a Russian Question; GeorgII Florvsky, In the World of Quests and Wanderings; Pavel Bovgorodtsev, The Essence of the Russian Orthodox Consciousness; Petr Struve, The Intelligentsia and the National Face; Andrie Bely, Revolution and Culture; Alekksandr Blok, Catiline; Evengy Trubetskoi, The Bolshevist Utopia and the Religious Movement.
