Beschreibung

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Orthodox Christianity in Russia has enjoyed a remarkable resurgence. Many Russians are now looking to the history of their faith as they try to rebuild a lost way of life. Vera Shevzov has spent ten years researching Orthodoxy as it was lived in the
years before the 1917 Revolution. In Russian Orthodoxy on the Eve of Revolution, she draws on a rich variety of previously untapped archival sources and published works unavailable in the West to reconstruct the religious world of lay people.
Shevzov traces the means by which men and women shaped their religious lives in an ecclesiastical system that was often dominated by bureaucrats and monastic bishops. She finds vivid displays of resistance to the official system and equally vivid affirmations of faith. Focusing on various
"centers" of religious life--the church temple, chapels, feasts, icons, and the Virgin Mary--she traces the rituals, beliefs, and communal dynamics that lent these centers meaning. Shevzov also presents the conflicting voices of ecclesiastical officials. She questions the notion that the only
challenge to Orthodoxy at the end of the ancien regime came from outsiders such as Marxist revolutionaries, atheistic intellectuals, and urban factor workers. Instead, she shows that a different but equally great challenge emerged within the faith community itself. Indeed, the late nineteenth and
early twentieth century is revealed as one of the most dynamic periods in the history of Russian Orthodoxy, characterized by debates analogous to the Reformation or the era of Vatican II. Russian Orthodoxy on the Eve of Revolution breaks new ground by giving voice to thepreviously-ignored common
people during this period immediately preceding one of the most important events of the twentieth century.

Pressestimmen

immensely fascinating book...The great strength and joy of this book is its detail, based on lengthy research in archives. Shevzov achieves a remarkable balance between general themes, worked out in different contexts, and vivid events and stories, drawn from the archives...an essential book for anyone seeking to understand the nature of Russian Orthodoxy and the tensions within it on the eve of the Revolution. Andrew Louth, Sobornost Vera Shevzov's book is not only of immense interest as a historical study, but contributes to an understanding of the Russian Orthodox Church today. Hugh Wybrew, Times Literary Supplement ... important study ... introduction to a rich and varied past. Church Times
