The mature writing of Fyodor Dostoevsky (1881-1881), most famous for his novel Crime and Punishment, was profoundly inspired by his encounters with Christian Orthodox monastic spirituality. Scholars including Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, have long been fascinated with Dostoevsky's Christian vision of universal love. We will spend the evening tracing his mystical teachings in some of his best-loved texts. There will be time for meditation.

 

No knowledge of Russian literature or Dostoevsky required - excerpts will be provided.

Josie teaches Russian literature and translation at the University of Bristol after stints at Cambridge and Oxford . She is an Oblate of the WCCM and has given workshops at Meditatio and in the wider world.
