Although biblical texts were known in Church Slavonic as early as the ninth century, translation of the Bible into Russian came about only in the nineteenth century. Modern scriptural translation generated major religious and cultural conflict within the Russian Orthodox church. The resulting divisions left church authority particularly vulnerable to political pressures exerted upon it in the twentieth century. Russian Bible Wars illuminates the fundamental issues of authority that have divided modern Russian religious culture. Set within the theoretical debate over secularization, the volume clarifies why the Russian Bible was issued relatively late and amidst great controversy. Stephen Batalden's study traces the development of biblical translation into Russian and of the 'Bible wars' that then occurred in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in Russia. The annotated bibliography of the Russian Bible identifies the different editions and their publication history.

'In Russian Bible Wars, Stephen Batalden has made a splendid contribution - or, rather, two splendid contributions - to the study of modern Russian Orthodoxy. In the English-speaking world, this book will be the starting point for discussions of the Russian Bible for a long time to come.' Modern Greek Studies Yearbook 'Batalden has produced a rich and thought-provoking book that succeeds in bridging the gap between religious intellectual history, which often loses sight of human actors and social forces on the ground, and the history of lived religion.' Robert H. Greene, Slavic Review 'This is a rich, exhaustive, and fascinating examination of the conflict over Russian translations of the scriptures in the early nineteenth century ... Very seldom does a rigorous scholarly investigation seethe with intrigue, mystery, astonishing turns, and unanticipated attacks, but Batalden's masterful study has all of this and more ... a truly gripping description and insightful assessment of a most significant stream of events in modern Russian history.' Michael Plekon, The Russian Review

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
