Chapter Summary

The "New Religious Consciousness" which Solovyov inspired in large part and to which Rozanov, Berdyaev and Vysheslavtsev belong, is admirably described in an article of that title written by leading American specialist on Russian philosophy James P. Scanlan. The period between 1905 and 1907 when Berdyaev was most closely associated with the Merezhkovsky-led Religious Philosophical Meetings presents a motley picture of Berdyaev's vacillating espousal now of monist views, now of dualist ones. Dmitri Sergeyevich Merezhkovsky led the Religious-Philosophical Meetings. These first public meetings took place between 1901 and 1903 and were attended by the leading religiously-interested philosophers, intellectuals and artists of the period and the intellectuals of the St. Petersburg clergy, many professors of the St. Petersburg Theological Seminary. The meetings passed under the aegis of Merezhkovsky's version of a revamping of Russian Christianity: the resolution of the conflict between paganism and Christianity.

Keywords: Berdyaev; Christianity; Merezhkovsky; Rozanov; Russian philosophy; Vysheslavtsev
