The Tale of Boiarynia Morozova: A Seventeenth-Century Religious Life (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Margaret Ziolkowski's book comprises a thorough introduction to, skillful translation of, and erudite commentary on the four-hundred-year-old Tale of Boiarynia Morozova. The story of Feodosia Morozova, a member of the Russian aristocratic elite and a major participant in the Russian Othodox Schism, describes one of the most violent ruptures in religious history-the complete destabilization of the bastions of church and society in seventeenth-century Russia. In her explication of this famous text, Ziolkowski examines the hagiography of the Tale, the spiritual asceticism of Morozova in the context of Christian womens' struggles for independence, and the role this prominent female dissident has played as a symbol of resistance to corrupt authority. This work makes a significant contribution to the history of the Orthodox Church, pre-Petrine Russia, women in religion, and the study of medieval Russian literature.
