Overview


In the void left by the fall of Communism in Russia during the late twentieth century, can that country establish a true civil society? Many scholars have analyzed the political landscape to answer this question, but in The Orthodox Church and Civil Society in Russia, Wallace L. Daniel offers a unique perspective: within the church are individuals who hold the values and institutional models that can be vital in determining the direction of Russia in the twenty-first century.

Daniel tells the stories of a teacher and controversial parish priest, the leader of Russia’s most famous women’s monastery, a newspaper editor, and a parish priest at Moscow University to explore thoroughly and with a human voice the transformation from Communist country to a new social order. Daniel explores specific religious communities and the way they operate, their efforts to rebuild parish life, and the individuals who have devoted themselves to such goals. This is the level, Daniel shows, at which the reconstruction of Russia and the revitalization of Russian society is taking place.

This book is written for general readers interested in the intersection between politics, religion, and society, as well as for scholars.

"A well-written and frequently moving account of the struggle of the Orthodox Church to find its place in post-communist Russia.

Berger, Boston University

Berger, Boston University
Russian Review
...an important contribution to the study of contemporary Russian society, and it should be read by anyone who wants to understand developments in post-Soviet Russian politics and culture.
Slavic Review
Recent studies have focused on the contribution to the development of civil society made by the Moscow Patriarchate, the governing body of the church. Daniel's "ground floor" approach is a truly valuable addition to this literature. The book is largely based on interviews and is written with a deep empathy and affection for those dedicated tot he renewal of spiritual life in Orthodox parishes and local communities. . . . This outstanding book will interest scholars of history, political science, and religious studies, as well as general readers concerned with religion in Russia. . . . it emphasizes the salience of the Orthodox tradition in the post-soviet era and will widen and deepen the dialogue and debate on the fascinating and important topic of Orthodoxy and civil society today.
