Abstract

The Russian Orthodox Church is actively seeking to shape the national identity of post-communist Russia. Monasteries have taken a leading role in articulating the church's social vision, but with different emphases. The Solovetskii Monastery commemorates the victims and martyrs of communist repression. The Sretenskii Monastery focuses on popular religious education. The monks at St. George's Parish engage in drug rehabilitation work. Each approach has latent democratic impulses, but it is not yet clear whether or how they will come to expression under the limitations of current church and state politics.
