Andrey Dmitriev. Vl. Solovyev’s Ecclesiology and Aleksey Khomyakov’s Theological Heritage in the Correspondence between Rtsy (I.F. Romanov) and Ivan Aksakov’s

In his article the author uses previously unpublished archival documents to present to the reader early works of Rtsy, an interesting thinker and publicist, while discussing his correspondence with Ivan Aksakov, a well-known journalist and the head of the Slavophile party at the time. Rtsy, why considered Aleksey Khomyakov to be his ideological teacher, criticized Aksakov for publishing Vladimir Solovyev’s articlesabout the reunification of the Churches. Rtsy thought that Soloviev's articles contradicted Khomyakov’s theological precepts. Rtsy's works demonstrate that he was a talented predecessor of philosopher Vаsiliy Rozanov.
