In the void left by the fall of Communism in Russia during the late twentieth century, can that country establish a true civil society? Many scholars have analyzed the political landscape to answer this question, but in The Orthodox Church and Civil Society in Russia, Wallace L. Daniel offers a unique perspective: within the church are individuals who hold the values and institutional models that can be vital in determining the direction of Russia in the twenty-first century.

Daniel tells the stories of a teacher and controversial parish priest, the leader of Russia’s most famous women’s monastery, a newspaper editor, and a parish priest at Moscow University to explore thoroughly and with a human voice the transformation from Communist country to a new social order. Daniel explores specific religious communities and the way they operate, their efforts to rebuild parish life, and the individuals who have devoted themselves to such goals. This is the level, Daniel shows, at which the reconstruction of Russia and the revitalization of Russian society is taking place.

This book is written for general readers interested in the intersection between politics, religion, and society, as well as for scholars.

“A well-written and frequently moving account of the struggle of the Orthodox Church to find its place in post-communist Russia. Contemporary events are placed in a comprehensive historical framework. The book should be read by anyone interested in the rapidly changing reality of contemporary Russia.”--Dr. Peter L. Berger, Boston University (Dr. Peter L. Berger, Boston University)
