Thinking Orthodox in Modern Russia illuminates the significant role of Russian Orthodox thought in shaping the discourse of educated society during the imperial and early Soviet periods. Bringing together an array of scholars, this book demonstrates that Orthodox reflections on spiritual, philosophical, and aesthetic issues of the day informed much of Russia s intellectual and cultural climate.
Volume editors Patrick Lally Michelson and Judith Deutsch Kornblatt provide a historical overview of Russian Orthodox thought and a critical essay on the current state of scholarship about religious thought in modern Russia. The contributors explore a wide range of topics, including Orthodox claims to a unique religious Enlightenment, contests over authority within the Russian Church, tensions between faith and reason in academic Orthodoxy, the relationship between sacraments and the self, the religious foundations of philosophical and legal categories, and the effect of Orthodox categories in the formation of Russian literature.

About the Author

August W. Derleth (1909-1971) sold his first story at fifteen and was an established author by the time he graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1930. Among his some 150 published works are volumes of poetry, fiction, biography, children's stories, and criticism. Although a nationally acclaimed master of suspense and supernatural tales, the Sauk City native was devoted to his regional writing, of which The Wisconsin and Walden West are shining representatives.
