Abstract and Keywords

Maximus’ legacy as it has been studied up to now in Russia and Ukraine is the subject of this chapter. First the author gives an overview of the history of Maximus’ translations into Russian. However, the main focus of the chapter is on the study of Maximus’ life and works in these two countries. Special attention is paid to the works and publications of some pre-revolutionary Russian scholars—Ivan Orlov, Sergei Epifanovich, Mitrofan Dmitry Muretov, and Alexander Brilliantov. In particular, the author explains that large parts of Epifanovich’s dissertation were recently recovered in Kiev by Ukrainian scholars. Study of Maximus’ legacy before the Russian Revolution is treated not only as a part of patristic studies in Russia, but also as a contributing factor in the development of Russian thought and even modern church history.

Keywords: Russia, Ukraine, Kiev, patristics, translations
