Kudaev A.E. - Methaphysical and anthropological bases of creative phylosophy of Nikolay Berdyaev pp. 1-95


Abstract: The article includes analysis of the religious methaphysics and сhristological anthropology by N.Berdyaev, which influenced the formation of the "key theme" of his "life and thought",  his creative philosophy.

The author reconstructs Berdyaev's mythologem on the human being, which influenced the understaning of creative nature and mission of a human being.

The author shows the central role of the primary phenomenon of tragic matters in the entire philosophical and aesthetic concept of N. Berdyaev, which directly influenced his concept of creation and tragedy and creation, from which the understanding of future "creative work" of human being is formed.

Poetry and the poet
Antonova E.M. - Ad Libitum: Philosophy and Poetry pp. 222-242


Abstract: This article analyzes the interaction between philosophy and poetry, how they exist together in the world of science and human life and whether philosophy and poetry may have common features or these two forms of human culture and thought are absolutely incomparable.

Imagination and its fruits
Granin R.S. - Problem of Reconstruction of Eschatological Paradigm in P.A. Florensky’s Metaphysics of Space-And-Time pp. 243-262


Abstract: The author of the article describes the method of the system research of eschatology. The variety of eschatological ideas and concepts are viewed as a logical system or eschatological paradigm that has a diachronic and synchronic structure. The author analyzes functional and structural correspondence between eschatological and initiative paradigms. It is shown that the eschatological paradigm comes down to the system of logical invariants, i.e. eschatological and initiative scenarios or patterns that are defined by the author as eschatological homologies. Introduction of the terms 'eschatological paradigm' and 'eschatological homology' allows to formalize the method of structural and comparative analysis applied to eschatological and initiative concepts describe by different religious and philosophical teachings. The author views this approach as methodology of structural eschatology. Structural method is used in Florensky's metaphysics including metaphysics of space and time. In this regard, the author defines the following basic categories: reversed causality, circularity of space and time, ostensibility and describes the idea of synchrony. Analysis of metaphysics of the space-and-time ostensibility allows to discover the structural basis - eschatological paradigm which, in its turn, makes it possible to apply the method of structural eschatology to reconstruction of eschatological paradigm. 
Krotovskaya N.G. - Piquard, L. Religious movements and burial rituals in Victorian London (translation) pp. 263-311


Abstract: During the Victorian epoch the former parochial structure of London, which required that the people obligatorily visited their parish, had vanished. For those, who wished to visit Anglican church service, England offerd confusing variety of such services, which were grouped around the so-called wide, high and low Churches, to which the followers of ritualism had later joined.  The regular visits to church were considered to show decency among middle class and upper class people, while the share of the lower class people in the parish was very small. The London cemeteries were overfilled after the Plague of 1665. From the mid-XIX century the private cemepteries started to open, and new fashionable burial tendencies appeared.
