The nineteenth and early twentieth centuries marked one of the most brilliant yet destructive periods in Russia's history. This course examines the broad range of spiritual and philosophical ideas that fueled a renaissance in the arts as well as a political revolution, both of which had enormous influence worldwide. It also considers the religious thought of Russian philosophical luminaries who found themselves in the West after the 1917 Russian Revolution. Topics include freedom, the individual, and the collective; beauty and the divine; wisdom and the divine feminine; mystical apocalypticism; death and resurrection; liberation, social justice, and the sacred; the notion of "Russia" as a religious idea.
