Черепанов Д. Д. Искусство и трансцендентное начало у Й. фон Эйхендорфа // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия III: Филология. 2014. Вып. 2 (37). С. 74-81. DOI: 10.15382/sturIII201437.74-81
The article deals with J. von Eichendorff’s concept of art and its difference from the views of Jena romantics. Special attention is given to the transformation of the religious world view peculiar to the Jena period, where the divine was typically understood as immanent. As Jena romantics discovered J. Boehme, they adopted his monistic approach, understanding the entire world as a manifestation of the Absolute. Art was therefore conceived as the appearance of the spiritual, i.e. of the divine. Thus the hero of L. Tiecks novellas «Der getreue Eckart und Der Tannenhäuser» (1799) and «Runenberg» (1804), even losing himself in the phantastic, always remains faithful to his artistic calling. Still seeing the world as a «hieroglyph», a symbol of the invisible, Eichendorff does not share these metaphysic ideas. His works represent another vision of the world, diff erentiating between transcendent God and immanent spiritual reality. The article suggests that this new notion of the spiritual is one of the reasons causing the emerging distinction between art and religion. Eichendorff’s early novel «Ahnung und Gegenwart» (1815) as well as his novellas «Die Zauberei im Herbste» (1808/1809) and «Das Marmorbild» (1818) are read in this context, showing a transformation of the romantic thought: for Eichendorff, too, poetry grants access to the spiritual world, making the artist sensible to the hidden beauty of nature. Transformed through poetic vision, nature indicates the existence of the transcendent, and may thus lead to God; but it also may fascinate the artist, captivating him in the realm of immanent. «Die Zauberei im Herbste» depicts an artist who is separated from the transcendent by «earthly images» («der Erde Bilder»); «Das Marmorbild» threats the danger of deifying spiritualized nature. A comparison with A. von Arnim’s novel «Armut, Reichtum, Schuld und Buße der Gräfi n Dolores» (1810), which had a strong influence on Eichendorff, further demonstrates the originality of the latter’s notion of art.

This article discusses different aspects of credibility to university rankings. The idea of comparing universities through ranking methodology was initially an instrument of independent university performance assessment. But in the last few years it became more and more clear that university rankings transform to an instrument which determines university's progress and therefore influences university's behavior and even its development strategy. The issue of credibility to international university rankings is analyzed in connection to academic excellence initiatives which were implemented during the last decade in a number of countries including Russia. In a number of cases universiti's achievements in the international rankings were considerend as a confirmation of academic excellence and it became more popular to use it as a basis for making policy and fi nancial decisions on a national level. Ranking achievements are also taken into accound in diff erent grant competitions and international cooperation projects. The article describes five basic aspects of credibility to university rankings: authorship of methodology, financial leadership and stability, source of data, fixing weight of the indicators, using or not using academic reputation survey. The author doubts the relevance of competitive approach to the mission and vision of modern university and comes to the conclusion that participation in the ranking rush fixes rather rigid boundaries which don’t enable universities to set their own priorities and restrict opportunities for academic development.

The key problem of this article is preservation of monumental painting, created by Russian artists of the mid 19th - early 20th century. For many years, researchers didn’t see the artistic value in the paintings of that time and not really tried to preserve it for posterity. Because of this attitude, many monuments in Russia have been lost forever. In this connection we have some interesting examples of religious art, preserved outside of our country. One of these truly unique monument is the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia, built in honor of the thousands of Russian soldiers who died for the liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule. Fortunately, it does not suffer the fate of those temples that was erected in memory of this event in other Balkan countries, and it survives till nowdays almost in its original form. Here are preserved superior murals and icons by V. M. Vasnetsov, A. A. Kiselev, A. M. Korin, P. E. Myasoedov and other Russian and Bulgarian artists. At the moment, due to lack of proper conditions of preservation and insufficiency of funds frescoes of Sofia’s cathedral threatens destruction, so it is important now is to draw attention to the problem of preserving these monumental religious art that are part of our common cultural heritage.

This article is dedicated to the 125th anniversary of Sveshnikov’ birth. Based on the experience, received during his education in MSCC (Moscow State Chorus College), the author analyzes the vocal-choral work of А. V. Sveshnikov, which was formed under the direct influence of church-vocal traditions. Keeping loyalty with native traditions, teacher-conductor increased them in the association managed by him, raising the culture of choral sounding to the unattainable level. The uniqueness of the methods of teaching of Sveshnikovis that it is oriented to the cultural memory of the native school of choral singing, which is held on two pillars — folkand church singing. Sveshnikovbuilt the system of aesthetical views, which determined his artistic-performer, pedagogical and organizational activity. Its analysis allowed the author to consider vocal-choral sounding as the special text, which characterizes the aesthetical features of the musical-intonation, sensually assimilating material. It contains art-like information, fulfi lling important communicative function. In the vocal-choral text the author distinguishes constant and variable sound characteristic. Sveshnikov worked them through in the process of mastering the special methods of the activity: the constant characteristics were worked through on the vocal exercises, variable characteristics — directly during the learning and performance of musical compositions. As a result the culture of sounding, the vocal-choral instrumentation of the performing works found multi-layer artistic semantics.
A. V. Sveshnikov — vocal teacher, performer, church-vocal traditions, the culture of choral sounding, constants and the variables of vocal-choral text.

The article “Karelian self-appointed orthodox priest in front of the church administration in the first third of the 18th century” focuses on the church hierarchy activity in the fi eld of regulating of fi lling priest’s vacancies in the Zaonezhskaya tithe of the Novgorod metropolitan in the second half of the 17th – first third of the 18th centhury. The issue is analyzed in the light of the case, which arose around the fact that a person, who assured the community in his ordination, occupied the position of the priest. The research is based on revealing of social and family relations among the parishioners and clergy during a few decades and on examination of the case in a wide context of the Church law and measures that were undertaken in this sphere by metropolitans of Novgorod. The investigation shows that parish communities in Zaonezhie used actively their right to elect candidates for the position of priest. The church authority acknowledged the legitimacy of the parish elections, but, at the same time, took intensive steps for regulation of filling priest's vacancies in order to unify and bring discipline into the spiritual life of Karelian parishes. Metropolitans of Novgorod successfully carried the requirements of the Church hierarchy by introduction of the position of priests’ elders, who served their archbishop, but in comparison with the other agents had authority among local clergy and parishioners.

This article analyses the choirmaster’s and precentor’s professional activity from the point of view of the style. The activity of the “choir conductor” and “precentor” are similar in meaning, whereas the stylistic content of this activity remains dissimilar. The comparison of secular and church-singing choral art allows us to defi ne the term “performing style”, explore the links of vocal and choral intonation with religious experience of believers as a characteristic feature of the church style of choral singing. The authors identify the pedagogical function of the precentor, draw attention to the spiritual and practical side of stylistic attribution, which is based on the interaction between various sensory modalities that form multi-level connections and relationships.

A series of Russian and Ruthenian polemical texts of the late XVIth – first half of the XVIIth century, dealing with icons, has been analyzed; is has been established that two sets of notions and meanings were conveying icons cult in Russia and Ruthenia: some were treating icons, like in the Latin West, as images of saints and sacred history; some other texts, unlike the Latin West, were claiming that icons as hypostases of saints as their prototypes and are possible because of God’s incarnation in Jesus Christ.

The phenomenon of theological incorrectness is primarily the result of the coexistence of two parallel levels of religious representations constituting a continuum of cognitive complexity. This article presents results of the replication experiment based on the classical study by J. L. Barrett and F. Keil (1996) aimed at diff erentiating levels of implicit anthropomorphic and explicit non-anthropomorphic reasoning about God. The data which were obtained in the experiment and based on the Russian Orthodox sample of Theology students have confi rmed the cross-cultural universality and stability of the phenomenon of theological incorrectness described by J. L. Barrett and now widely accepted in the cognitive religious science. In a real-thinking mode aimed at rapid solutions to problems, complicated and cognitively cumbersome theological concepts do undergo systematic deformation and optimisation and acquire anthropomorphic properties corresponding to our default ontological assumptions. Such a tacit deformation seems to be independent from theological representations and occurs even in the presence of explicitly held non-anthropomorphic concepts of God.

This article studies the infl uence of the views formulated in the discussion about the parish reform by members of the Circle of those Seeking Christian Enlightenment and the Brotherhood of Saint Moscow Metropolitans Peter, Alexy, Iona and Philip on the notion of the Church by S. Fudel, the outstanding church writer of the 20th century. Sergei Iosifovich was a close friend of a number of prominent members of the Circle and the Brotherhood, amoung the founders of which was also his father, archpriest Iosif Fudel. Some of them, like N. D. Kuznetsov, argued in favour of restoration of independence of parishes as main units of church life, following the notion of the independent community formulated already by D. F. Samarin. Others, like L. A. Tikhomirov and D. A. Khomyakov, believed that the diocese rather than the parish was the main unit and emphasised the importance of a hierarchical structure, being cautious about the split-off of parishes. Both these stances revealed the heterogeneity of the parish as a territorial entity, as well as the insuffi cience of the notion of the layman. From projects based on this notion, the members of the Brotherhood went over to the thought about distinguishing actual members of the community from the mass of all church-goers. This problem came to be expressed only after the revolution in the notion of the inner border of the church in “Letters to Friends” by M. A. Novoselov. It was very clearly manifested in S. Fudel’s works, who employed a traditional notion of the member of the church as the “faithful”.

This article deals with the development of church art in the twentieth century, mainly in the 1920‒30s. In these years, after massive destruction of the First World War in Europe, arose the need for the reconstruction and construction of a large number of new churches. The religious and artistic sensitivity of that epoch required from projects of new Catholic churches a certain array of decorative elements, even if their architecture was simple and functional. However, in the projects of reconstruction of churches in the 1920s, new variants of the renewal of materials and constructions began to be off ered more and more often, and these had obvious signs of innovative solutions, both from the point of view of the plan, the formation of surfaces, the technologies employed. The main novel material was concrete, widely used both for the construction of new churches, and for their decoration. In Belgium, in the 1920s, Modernism fi rst emerged as an architectural style, which was then widely developed globally in the 1930s in competition with Art Deco style. Modernism, unlike Art Deco, turns its back on the architectural traditions of the past, rejects any decorations and focuses on the function of the building. It is these characteristics that made the architecture of modernism popular among the supporters of the «liturgical movement» in the Catholic Church in the twentieth century.

Тимофеева Е. Д. Балладные традиции в ранней поэзии Н. С. Гумилева // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия III: Филология. 2019. Вып. 58. С. 11-23. DOI: 10.15382/sturIII201958.11-23
This article makes an attempt to trace signs of Romanticism in early poetry by Nikolai Gumilev and identify those ballad features that were specifi c to his poems already according to his contemporaries’ opinion. The main source of Romantic motifs for Gumilev came to be ballads by Vasily Zhukovsky. He was very familiar with them not only because of the syllabi of educational institutions, but also from anthologies of Russian and European literature that were in his reading circle in early years. The article identifi es the texts and themes of the poet of the 19th century that were most important to Gumilev and analyses their employment both in the fi rst collections of the leader of the Acmeists (The Way of Conquistadors and Romantic Flowers) and in his more mature books. The article examines the levels of borrowing of the plots, themes and single formulae as well as the transformation of these techniques in the course of time. Besides, the article traces the evolution of Gumilev’s attitude to the motifs in question and analyses their role in the context of his literary work and the contemporary literary process, namely the interaction of these plots with prominent topics of Symbolist poetry of this period, as well as his polemic with Zhukovsky (the poet important to the modernists) and with the established literary tradition.

The article attempts to analyze the painting of the northern apse of the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin of the Snetogorsky Monastery and its theological and theological content. The description of the iconographic program in accordance with the register division of the architectural volume. Thematic selection of plots gives a detailed theological commentary on the proskomedia. The sources of the origin of the scenes lie in the fi eld of the Holy Scripture and represent a doctrinal, historical and exegetical series regarding the formation and patristic understanding of the order of the proskomide.The article identifi es the semantic relationship of the content of the plots and their compositional structure. In the upper register, the sacrifi ce of Abraham is compared with the image of the Most Holy Trinity. The middle register contains a selection of biblical scenes from the Old and New Testaments. Lower case is represented by fi gures of saints, some of which are attributed. The iconographic program is analyzed in relation to the basics of Christian doctrine and traditions of liturgical practice, and a theological interpretation of the content of the painting is given. Some of the plots are intended to clarify the dogmatic signifi cance of the sacred rite performed in the north apse. Some of the plots show the historical development and tradition of off ering sacrifices and gifts to God. Some images of saints are textologically related to the order. Their names are mentioned during the commission of the proskomide, so they appear in the mural of the altar. The article specifies written sources, art history counterparts, and liturgical peculiarities that form the basis for plot formation. The dedication of the painting of the northern apse to the themes of the Atonement, sacrifi ce, preparation of the Gifts is an exceptional fact for the beginning of the 14th century. The preparation of the Lamb is commented in biblical, historical, symbolic, representative, textual perspectives. The study of the painting according to the principle of theological analysis made it possible to designate the infl uence of Christian dogma and liturgical practice on the monumental art of Ancient Russia. The study showed that the art history features of the monument were formed, primarily, under the infl uence of Christian dogma and liturgical practice. At the same time, the features of the selection of certain plots indicate their reliance on the liturgical tradition prevalent in Novgorod, in whose jurisdiction Pskov belonged. By the 14th century, the liturgical formation of the rank of proskomedia was completed, and in Snetogorsky Cathedral we encounter the earliest theological and artistic interpretation of this rite in ancient Russian art.

Зимина Н. П., Королева Е. Д. Епископ Назарий (Андреев) в новейшей церковной истории (к вопросу о явлении конформизма в Русской Православной Церкви в 1920-е гг.) // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия II: История. История Русской Православной Церкви. 2019. Вып. 91. С. 105-132. DOI: 10.15382/sturII201991.105-132
This article studies life and work of Bishop Nazariy (Andreev, 1865–1940), the prominent representative of the conformist episcopate of the 1920s. The use of a large range of previously unknown documents allowed the authors to compile a complete biography and to clarify the bishop’s church-related and political views, to specify the staff of the dioceses under his control, to reveal some methods of the Joint State Political Directorate (Russ. ОГПУ) in designing church schisms. It is shown that bishop Nazariy publicly defended the church after the February and October revolutions. During the Civil War he denounced the ideology of Bolshevism and, at the same time, criticised the policy of the Siberian White governments in connection with the foreign intervention and the involvement of the church in civil confrontation. After the war, he sought to find a compromise with the Soviet authorities and argued that the main task of the clergy was to christianise society and to dissociate from “political gambling”. In September 1922, by the eff orts of the State Political Directorate, he was removed from Yenisey diocese, lapsed into the Renovationist schism and started to support the methods of bishop of Tomsk Sophroniy (Arefyev) in pushing back the radical Renovationist group Living Church from the administration of Siberian dioceses in favour of the more moderate Union of Church Revival. He became one of the founders of the Renovationist episcopate of Siberia. The article gives data on the activities of Bishop Nazariy at the Renovationist see in Rostov-on-Don, his repentance to patriarch Tikhon and his appointment to Syzran, the new lapse into the Renovationist schism. The article shows the role of the State Political Directorate in the seduction of Bishop Nazariy into the Gregorian schism. It also outlines his return to the Orthodox Church and his activity at Chelyabinsk see in 1928. His fate after the arrest and conviction is also described.

This article deals with some episodes in the purchase by the state of the Egyptian collection assembled by Vladimir Golenishchev (1856–1947); its subsequent transfer to one of Russian museums in 1908–1909 is described as well. A fi nancial failure urged Golenishchev, the prominent Russian Egyptologist and heir of a merchant family, to seek a possibility of selling the collection of Ancient Egyptian artefacts that he had been gathering for 30 years. In the fi rst place, he suggested this purchase to the Russian state. His address to the emperor and subsequent petitions of the Imperial Academy of Sciences and of the Russian Archaeological Society resulted in a handover of the case to the Council of Ministers. The Council suggested that this matter should be considered by the State Duma and that a purchase of the collection from the budget funds should be proposed (the relevant bill was passed in April 1909). Archival documents published in the article show a highly important role of Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich, head of the Academy and of the Russian Archaeological Society, in presenting the case before the emperor. Probably, he acted on advice and proposals of the historian Sergey Platonov. It is likely that after the decision of the Council of Ministers in April 1908 took place the last attempt to convince Nicolas II to buy the collection from personal funds on condition of annual rent and not a lump payment to its owner. Like previously, Golenishchev’s colleagues (namely, the Egyptologist Boris Turayev) addressed Platonov to gain support from Grand Duke who was to address the emperor again. This resulted in the ultimate decision of Nicolas II to approve the Council’s decision and to pass the case to the legislature. The documents show that Golenishchev was discontented with the lingering procedure and considered for a while selling the collection outside Russia, though he soon rejected the idea.

Крюков П. Д. Октоих нотированный XVII века: современные задачи изучения // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия V: Вопросы истории и теории христианского искусства. 2020. Вып. 38. С. 23-35. DOI: 10.15382/sturV202038.23-35
The purpose of this article is to identify and describe current problems of study of the notated Octoechos of the 17th century, particularly those that are related to the reform of printing in the mid-17th century. The use of the Octoechos notated in the 17th century is fully incorporated in the context of the whole period of development of this book, beginning from its use as a separate collection since the end of the 15th century. In order to solve the main problems, the article formulates the following directions of the study: search for and systematisation of all preserved copies of the Octoechos notated in the 17th century; establishing the typology and compiling, as far as it is possible, a comprehensive catalogue and manual with a scientifi c description of the manuscripts; the study of technical aspects in the process of emendation of singing with this book as an example. An important direction in the range of the formulated tasks is the identifi cation and understanding with the Octoechos of the 17th century as an example of the system of the Russian Octoechos and the study of the role of patterns of singing in chanting hymns. The article shows the features of writing down and structuring chants from the book in question. In order to illustrate the process of the reform of singing in the mid- 17th century, the article uses examples from notated MSs.

The article is devoted to the topical problem of methodology in the field of scientific and pedagogical research, i.e. the analysis of the prerequisites for the design of humanities-related expertise as a method of scientifi c knowledge in pedagogy. The emphasis is on substantiating the role, purpose and instrumental support of humanities-related expertise in education. The three most signifi cant fundamental methods in pedagogy are hypothetically singled out and considered, which make it possible to determine the scientifi c foundations of the method of humanities-related examination and its instrumental part of application in pedagogical research. These include pedagogical observation, pedagogical refl ection, and pedagogical hermeneutics. The presented study refl ects the content of the experience and conclusions of Russian scientists who employed the method of humanities-related expertise in order to determine the risks of approbation and implementation of new technologies in human life. The special purpose of humanities-related expertise in providing an ethical dimension in the process of assessing risks associated with modern innovative projects is emphasised. The study raises the problem of the formation of the expert position of the teacher, focused on the application of the method of humanities-related expertise in the practice of pedagogical activity directly in the conditions of work with children. The article has a character of an analytical outline and forms an idea of the areas of scientifi c research in which the method of humanities-related expertise is presented as a subject of research. Based on the study, a signifi cant clarifi cation is made in the understanding of humanities-related expertise in education as a research method that is synergistic in nature and aimed at analysing the humanities-related potential of the process and the results obtained in the situation of introducing pedagogical innovations through the use of educational technologies, as well as in the context of the introduction of innovative pedagogical models and systems.

Серия I: Богословие. Философия. Религиоведение. 2021. Вып. 95. С. 109-122. DOI: 10.15382/sturI202195.109-122
This article analyses a document that has up to now been unknown to the present-day historiography, i.e. a letter from the head of the Russian Catholic Apostolic Exarchate of Russia Leonid Fedorov in which he reports about the state of aff airs in the Catholic community after the advent of Soviet authorities as well as about the measures being taken by the government towards the gradual limitation and then the actual elimination of the Greek-Catholic Church of the Byzantine Rite in the territory of Russia. The hopes of believers for the liberalisation of attitudes to the Catholic Church on the part of the Bolsheviks and the expansion of the range of their rights and opportunities after the change of the political regime in the country were not fulfi lled. The article concludes that Exarch L. Fedorov was one of the fi rst religious fi gures (given the date of writing the letter) to see this tragic trend for Greek Catholics through the prism of the features of the Soviet secularist project as a political religion; he did realise their destructive role for the development of Christianity in Russia. Drawing on the letter of the Exarch, the article concludes that the Soviet state acted consciously in order to deprive the church of its public status and authority. While at the offi cial level, during negotiations with representatives of the Holy See, Soviet diplomacy did not inform about the state’s intentions to interfere in the Catholic Church’s internal jurisdiction, L. Fedorov in his report described the real state of aff airs in the country, i.e. the essence of the anti-religious policies carried out by Soviet authorities and their intention to turn the Church into a social institution in the service of Soviet society. The article examines the phenomenon of the Soviet government through its attitudes to and relations with religious institutions and the ways of survival of the church in the new conditions.

This article is devoted to one of the central genres of the book Oktoikh notirovanny (‘Notated Octoechos’), i.e. the antiphons Stepenny. It discusses the problems of forming the notated cycles in the Octoechos in the most ancient stage and identifies the ways of their transformation. It also substantiates the problems of continuity of the poetic and musical texts by the mid-15th century with this cycle used as an example. The object of the study is the most ancient extant manuscript from the collection of the Tretyakov Gallery which contains a copy of the antiphons Stepenny with Znamennaya notation. The article studies this copy using the example of the antiphons of the 4th mode (glas) both as an independent mode and in comparison with the copy of the Stepenny from a collection of the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius; it compares the structure of the chants, principles of notation, reveals discrepancies in the poetic text and the note text. The following conclusions are made based on the comparison of the copies: by the time of the “fracture of style”, the discrepancies in the poetic texts of the chants prove to be insignifi cant and can be explained by local editing; the structure of the chants and their division into lines is practically always identical; the analysis and comparison of the note text allows one to state that the singing of the antiphons Stepenny, judging by the hook line, was similar. This provides evidence of the continuity between the copy of the 15th century as related to that of the 11th century, while techniques of their editing refl ect characteristic features of the singers’ practice.

Суслова Е. Д. Традиционное территориальное устройство Андомского прихода Олонецкого уезда в первой половине XVIII столетия // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия II: История. История Русской Православной Церкви. 2022. Вып. 106. С. 44-61. DOI: 10.15382/sturII2022106.44-61
The article investigates the specific features in the territorial structure of the church parish on the Andoma pogost district of the Olonets uyezd during the first half of the 18th century. The set problem has not been the subject of close analysis in the historiography yet. Approving the idea that the parish on the North-West of Russia was coherent with the small district (volost’) in 17—18th centuries, emphasizing the unity of the parish, scientists mainly focused on the problem of identifying the general features of the parish and on classification of parishes. The study is based on a comparative analysis of data that were fixed in the reports of the local priests in 1708 and confessional records in 1769. The reconstruction of the grid of all mentioned in the sources villages were used for visualizing the groups of villages, inhabitants of which belonged to different parts of the parish. The revealing data as well as the reconstruction of peculiarities how the clergy was attached to one or another church and how the staff of the clergy was divided into two parts allow us to conclude that the church parish of the Andoma pogost district had significantly more complicated structure, especially in comparative with the structure of church parishes of not very vast districts (volosts). According to tradition the parish was divided into two parts for regulating mechanism of material support of the clergy, distributing obligations among them and satisfaction spiritual needs of the laity. Both parts of the parish had a significant degree of self-dependence: each had its own church, own clergy that was included in the common clergy staff (shtat), and the strictly geographically localized group of villages. The stable using of archaic practices in the territorial organization of the parish during the first half of the 18th century suggests that the local community managed to adapt them to the newly approved legislative principles, aimed at unifying and enlarging church parishes. This was largely possible as the state and church policy took into account archaic traditions of local communities and was aimed on results in the long term.

Ten years after publishing A Nest of the Gentlefolk in Sovremennik in 1859, an English translation of the novel appeared prepared by English researcher and translator William Ralston Shedden-Ralston. The scholar was particularly interested in Russian literature and contributed a lot to its popularity in England. He translated the works of Ivan Krylov, Nikolay Nekrasov, Alexander Ostrovsky and Ivan Turgenev who was the constant addressee of his letters. Getting permission to translate and publish A Nest of the Gentlefolk in English, Ralston was very careful with the original text and stayed in touch with the author in debatable or hard moments in the book. He even sent the full version for Turgenev to check and edit before publication. In general, the translation turned out very accurate though some moments were still missing from it. But nevertheless one significant change was made. The new title — Liza — was doomed to offer new interpretations of Turgenev’s work. Highly praising the novel, the critics, however, shifted the focus on female character and the love story which was destroyed by the religious feelings of the character. They saw the possible threat of human happiness in Liza’s appeal to God which differed greatly from the Russian interpretation of her action. The present article is dedicated to the analysis of British and American lifetime critic reviews on the novel A Nest of the Gentlefolk where their unique understanding of Turgenev’s work expressed.
