Religion and Society in Russia

After the Time of Troubles new currents of thought began to appear in Russian religious literature. Both innovators and conservatives were open to the religious literature of the Ukraine, though in different degrees. The strongest connection comes in the work of Prince Ivan Andreevich Khvorostinin, the author of both a history of the Troubles and of innovative religious works. Khvorostinin's historical works reveal the transition, but he was a religious writer as well. As such he was one of a small number of innovative thinkers of the second quarter of the seventeenth century, most of them laymen. Besides Khvorostinin, there are the monk Ivan Nasedka, the poets of the Printing Office, and Druzhina Osorʼin, the author of the life of luliana Muromskaia, a pious noblewoman of the early seventeenth century.

Keywords:   Ivan Nasedka, Prince Khvorostinin, Printing Office, luliana Muromskaia, Time of Troubles, Druzhina Osorʼin
