Produktbeschreibung
The author undertakes an investigation into the history of Russian Freemasonry that has not been attempted previously. Her premise is that the Russian Enlightenment shows peculiar features, which prevent the application of the interpretative framework commonly used for the history of western thought. The author deals with the development of early Russian masonry, the formation of the Novikov circle in Moscow, the 'programme' of Rosicrucianism and the character of its Russian variant and, finally, the clash between the Rosicrucians and the State. The author concludes that the defenders of the Ancien Régime were not wrong. In fact the democratic behaviour, the critical attitude, the practice of participation, the freedom of thought, the tolerance for the diversity, the search for a direct communication with the divinity, in short all the attitudes and behaviours first practiced inside the eighteenth century Rosicrucian lodges constituted a cultural experience which spread throughout the entire society. Novikov's imprisonment in 1792 and the war against the Rosicrucian literature were attempts to thwart a culture, based on the independence of thought that was taking root inside the very establishment, representing a menace to its stability.

Rezensionen
From the pre-publication reviews:
"...this is a valuable contribution to scholarship and fully worthy of publication. It should have a wide appeal to those with a general interest in the history of European freemasonry in the eighteenth century, Enlightenment studies, and Russian eighteenth-century history as well as to specialists in Muscovite Rosicrucianism and the development of Russian social thought."

"It is a work of immense scholarly distinction and demands to be published. Professor Faggionato has to a large degree undertaken to rewrite the history of Russian Freemasonry, in particular of the Novikov circle, and she does it persuasively, sensitively, convincingly."
