Religion and Secular Modernity in Russian Christianity, Judaism, and Atheism is a multifaceted account of the engagement between religion and the secular in Russia's Christian, Jewish, and atheist traditions. Ana Siljak brings together an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars to present unique perspectives on the secularization dynamic in Russia and the Soviet Union, telling stories about theologians, sects, churches, poets, and artists.

From the Jewish Christian priest, Alexander Men, to the cross-dressing poet, Zinaida Gippius, to the Soviet promoter of Yiddish theater, Solomon Mikhoels, Religion and Secular Modernity in Russian Christianity, Judaism, and Atheism gives a voice to a variety of actors that have grappled with the possibilities of faith and unbelief in an industrialized, modern, and seemingly secular world. Now more than ever, as one narrative of Russia's religious history dominates official Russian accounts, alternative perspectives of the relationship between Russian religion and secularism should be highlighted and emphasized.

Ana Siljak is Associate Professor of Humanities in the Hamilton Center at the University of Florida. Her research and publications focus on Russian philosophy and religious thought. She is completing a book on the personalism of Nikolai Berdiaev and a translation of the correspondence between Nikolai Berdiaev and Jacques Maritain.
