The Orthodox Church in pre-revolutionary Russia was a pervasive part of everyday life, yet we know comparatively little about it. This book (at long last) fills in a huge gap in the study of Russia. It spans the fields of ethnography, cultural studies, history, and religious studies, and will help readers understand not only the enormous vitality and variety of everyday Orthodoxy in the last decades of the tsarist empire, but also give insight into what an enormous change was worked when the Communist regime destroyed the Church, and what the revival of the Church today might mean for Russian society after decades of disrupted tradition. A highly recommended read. An essential addition to class syllabi too.
