Russian Orthodoxy on the Eve of Revolution

This chapter focuses on the debates about church and community that emerged in 1905. It briefly discusses the legislation that was the basis of the institutional structure of the Russian Orthodox Church, namely the Spiritual Regulation of Peter the Great. It then turns to the tensions emerging in the theological realm, epitomized by the contrast between the thought of the bishop of Moscow Makarii Bulgakov, and lay theologian, Slavophile and landowner Aleksei Khomiakov. This is followed by a discussion on the competing ecclesial views of two Orthodox canon lawyers, A.A. Papkov and I.S. Berdnikov.
