Solovyov’s Conception of Christian Culture

  • Jonathan Sutton
Part of the Library of Philosophy and Religion book series (LPR)


In previous chapters I have directed considerable attention to Solovyov’s views on Judaic and Christian schemes for a theocratic society. I have also underlined the point that the notion of theocracy became closely bound, in Solovyov’s mind, with the attempt to define as fully and lucidly as possible the features of a spiritual community.
