Paradigm of Russian Theocracy as Commemoration and Religious Ideal


Background/Objectives: The study considers religious and philosophical thought and the concept of theocracy that have been developed in Russian culture for over ten centuries by Church hierarchs, philosophers and public persons. Methods: The author makes an attempt not only to identify the evolutional vector of Russian theoretical thinking but also to characterize its initial worldview foundations and the historical preconditions for its formation. Findings: Given the fact that during the whole period of development of philosophy in Russia theocratic intuitions have never occupied central positions in the worldview search in Russian society (as compared to, for example, the subjects of philosophy of history, philosophy and anthropology, ethics and aesthetics), it is still interesting to determine the specific features that make Russian ideal of theocracy original and unique. Applications/Improvements: Dogmatic and historic factors that established in Russian consciousness the idea of “symphony” of state and church powers make it possible to consider theocratic concept as constructive form of commemoration.
