Moscow, the Fourth Rome: Stalinism, cosmopolitanism, and the evolution of Soviet culture, 1931-1941

Clark, Katerina

Description

The sixteenth-century monk Filofei proclaimed Moscow the Third Rome. By the 1930s, intellectuals and artists all over the world thought of Moscow as a mecca of secular enlightenment. Clark shows how Soviet officials and intellectuals sought to establish their capital as the Fourth Rome—a cosmopolitan post-Christian beacon for the rest of the world.
