Abstract:

A time of innovation, creativity, and social upheaval, the seventeenth century in Russia and Ukraine saw broad religious and cultural changes. Focusing on the lived experience of individuals in Russia and Ukraine, these essays explore continuity and change comparatively and in the context of larger interpretative issues, such as popular culture, mentality, and religiosity. Providing a fresh look at religion and culture during a pivotal era, this collection lays a foundation for comparing the cultural concerns of Moscovy and Ukraine with those of Western Europe after the Reformation. It will be an important resource for readers interested in the history of early modern Europe, Russia, and comparative religions.
