Национализм и христианский универсализм в русском духовном опыте
The article has been written as an essay open to discussion. Several cultural conflicts between national and religious ideological patterns in Mediaeval and modern Russian and Soviet history have been observed. The author believes that universal Christian values must have an unconditional priority in comparison to patriotic, national, and governmental goals. Christianity – as
a part of the state services, combined with nationalistic and romantic ideas, was used, as the author puts forward, to bring Russian society to catastrophic consequences.
