«Отстал от века?» В.И. Герье и А.Н. Савин
This article is devoted to the problem of relationship between the government and the academic staff of the Moscow University in Russia during the years from 1908 to 1911. The research is based on the diary of historian A.N.Savin. It is an attempt to reconstruct the attitude of the university staff to the government policy and to reveal the most complicated and painful questions in the university life. Among all - it is a problem of relationship and mutual understanding between the student and academic body, the intelligentsia question of moral authority. Those events in Russian academic life and the mass resignation of the professors from Moscow University seemed to be the first «purge» of the intellectuals in Russia in the XXth century.
