The Silver Age of Russian theological scholarship was crushed by a series of revolutions, which forced many Russian Orthodox scholars into exile. Yet, the diaspora of scholars writing from the Oxford and Paris schools offered something vital not only for Russian Orthodoxy, but also for ecumenical dialogue. That is, under new conditions, liberated from the constraints of scholastic academic discourse, and living and writing in new languages, those who represented these schools set out not only to reinterpret their own traditions but also to introduce Russian Orthodoxy to the West. The Fellowship of St. Alban & St. Sergius, for example, has done a tremendous service at drawing Russian Orthodox and Anglican scholars together for rich and careful dialogue. Nevertheless, relative few have considered the works of the Russian Orthodox exiles, particularly insofar as these figures act as critical and constructive conversation partners. A project such as this will expand upon the much needed and relatively limited conversation between some of the best Russian thinkers, including contributions in literature, philosophy, and theology, with the most significant Protestant theologian from the last century, Karl Barth.
