Summary

This volume investigates the philosophical and literary idea of "apocalypse," within some key examples in the arts and thought of the "Slavic world" during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is not only St. John's Apocalypse - with its roots deeply entrenched in the artistic sensitivity of the Slavic people - which is examined here. The apocalypse, as "filtered" through Slavic sensitivity, is largely a form of artistic imagery which suggests, at its very heart, that the highest hope necessarily passes through a temporary annihilation of "earthly things." To understand this idea means to understand an essential part of Slavic culture, which, however divergent and variegated it may be, converges on this specific point in a surprising manner.
