The Russian Revolution / Babuske
« on: September 22, 2009, 11:42:22 AM »
There is a common statement that during Communism women, especially the eldest called "babuske" (something like grannies) distinguished themselves as guardians of faith and traditions, in particular trough the upbringing of children that, otherwise, would have received no infos but those filtered by the regime. In particular st.Seraphim is said to have foreseen this important role played by mothers. Do you know anyhting about this?

Their World and Culture / The Slavophils
« on: September 07, 2009, 10:00:54 AM »
Hello to everybody!
I'm new here and I'm doing a personal research about a group of Russian philosophers of the late XIX century called the Slavophils. They opposed to the modernism introduced by Peter the Great and wished for the return to the ancient Russian Empire as an example of fully Christian society. Do you know if the Imperial family has ever been in contact with any of them, and what did they think about this way of thought?
Thank you!!!
