Dilemmas of Reaction in Leninist Russia

The Christian Response to the Revolution in the Works of N.A. Berdyaev 1917-1924

By Christian Gottlieb

In the moral and spiritual vacuum left in Russia by the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989-1991, some of the thinkers who first opposed the Leninist revolution of 1917 have come to a new prominence, and among these is the religious philosopher Nikolai Berdyaev (1874-1948). He expressed a passionate protest against the revolution and was clearly the most comprehensive contemporary critic of the revolutionary project from a Christian perspective. From his consistently religious perspective he foresaw with precision much of the inhuman and tyrannical potential of the revolutionary project.
