This interdisciplinary symposium, organized by Francesca Silano from the Russian Studies Workshop at IU Bloomington, investigates the historical, theological, and political implications of religion and revolution in Russia. Over two days, participating researchers will discuss a series of pre-circulated essays that will eventually become part of an edited volume on religion and revolution. The scholars have written pieces that reflect: the wide variety of engagement with, and diversity of response to revolution within confessional communities; and those shared experiences among peoples of different faiths that subsequently bonded these diverse communities (Orthodox, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, etc.) in new ways over the course of the next 70 years, in light of the revolution’s trajectory even in these early years.
