This study claims that the acceptance of Christianity in the 10th century was the most significant cultural event in the history of modern Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. A vast reservoir of cultural concepts, expressions and iconographic images developed within the Eastern Orthodox tradition. Nowadays, Slavic specialists, theologians, historians and literary scholars can turn to a collection which examines the sweep of a thousand years of Slavic Christianity. This is the first in a three-volume collection that brings together essays from two international conferences. The present volume explores the history and influence of Christianity on the Slavs from the 10th to the 17th centuries. Volume 2 examines cultural history from the 18th to the 20th centuries, and Volume 3 examines literature of the 19th and 20th centuries.

All post-Tolstoy writers, whether Russian or foreign, have had to contend with his image. He and his books stand inescapably there: massive, majestic, seemingly impregnable. Two incompatible Tolstoy's confront each succeeding generation that attempts to understand his oeuvre: on one hand the husband, father, aristocratic landowner and world-famous novelist; on the other the 'humble' prophet of Christian anarchism, anti-cultural 'simplification', and 'a love for others so undifferentiated that it could be bestowed equally on all fellow human beings'. The essays in this volume add some further illumination to the world's quest for an understanding and appreciation of this great Russian master. The contributors address a wide variety of problems concerning the interpretation of Tolstoy's work. Ruth Rischin examines the reverberations of music in Tolstoy's works, while John Weeks analyzes the sound symbolism in Andrei Bolkonsky's death in "War and Peace". Concentrating on "Anna Karenina", Andrew Wachtel discerns a death-and-resurrection subtext; Irina Gutkin explores Tolstoy's use of Platonic reminiscences; Joan Grossman traces the echoes of the nineteenth-century 'society tale'; and, Hugh McLean focuses on ambiguities in the relationship between real-life models and fictional episodes in the novel. Rounding out the collection, John Kopper focuses on a series of sexual linkages in Tolstoy's late fiction.
