Project Summary

Addresses a dimension of the Russian Empire’s religious experience by exploring discourses of religious tolerance and relating them to developing conceptions of citizenship. Hypothesizes that while explicitly more tolerant views on non-Orthodox religions acknowledged diversity and thereby implied a more inclusive set of standards for the formation of an empire-wide polity, these views simultaneously contributed to the constitution of Orthodoxy as the ideal, if not indispensable foundations for modern forms of citizenness.
