This chapter examines the religious life trajectory of a famous Russian literary scholar and professor Stepan Shevyrev. Using unpublished sources, I trace his intellectual development which was influenced by Friedrich Schlegel and Franz von Baader. The artcile shows how Shevyrev objected to Schlegel's religious literary criticims in the 1830s and conversed to the Orthodox literary theory in the 1840s under the influence of Franz von Baader's philosophy.
This paper is aimed at exploring the origins and mechanisms which have contributed to the creation of Ivan Dmitriev’s autobiographic “double identity” – as a Russian “classic” poet and as a high ranking state official. His biography is reconstructed in light of his literary and bureaucratic achievements (Dmitriev was one of the famous and acknowledged poets at the beginning of 19th century and also built a successful career as a civil servant becoming the Russian Minister of justice in 1810). A crucial point in his biography occured when his two identities came into clash, in the course of his controversy with Mikhail Kachenovskii, critic and editor of an influential literary review, the “Vestnik Evropy”. This paper analyses also Dmitriev’s defensive strategies against the attacks of literary critics who combined his two different identities, which seemed to him to be mutually exclusive. An explanation of his attitude can be found in the social conventions that regulated the Russian noblemen’s norms of behavior of the time.
