East European History - Jahrbücher für Geschichte Osteuropas 

Published on behalf of the IOS  by Martin Schulze Wessel and Dietmar Neutatz

This year’s third volume is an interdisciplinary special issue dedicated to inakomyslie (dissent / thinking differently) in Russia from the 18th century to the present. The issue’s guest editor Agnieszka Zagańczyk-Neufeld (Bochum) addresses religious deviance in the late Russian Empire in her historical study by focusing on the development and perception of the Khlysts as a religious sect. Using the example of the priests Nikolai Eshliman and Gleb Iakunin, Christian Föller (Münster) examines inakomyslie in the Russian Orthodox Church from the 1960s through the 1980s from a theological perspective. He shows how the representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church presented themselves as both loyal Soviet citizens and ardent believers to claim their rights vis-à-vis the state and the church. A discussion of the legal status of dissent in the Russian Federation by Benjamin Reeve (Köln) completes the issue. His analysis of the interplay between state, constitution and society helps to explain the difficulties faced by dissenters in contemporary Russia due to the predominant interpretation of state and freedom.
