Lord Radstock was an English Christian evangelist who caused a considerable stir in Russian society in the mid-1870s. That a significant number of very influential people joined his movement alarmed conservatives in the Russian Orthodox Church and in government
that so many of their servants did so too aroused fears of "undesirable" egalitarianism and even revolutionary sentiment.
Written by the Russian story-writer and novelist Nikolai Leskov, this study was written to redress the balance and recall society to a sense of proportion. It gives a picture of the social and religious context of the day, and of the clash between two very different religious cultures
Russian Orthodoxy and English Evangelical Protestantism. Nikolar Leskov is the author of "Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk", "Cathedral Folk", "The Enchanted Pilgrim", "The Sealed Angel", "Lefty", "Vale of Tears" and "The March Hare".
