Petrov post, lectures on music, the Old Testament, the anthropology of the game
Began Petrov (Apostolic) post, dedicated to the feast of Peter and Paul. Here are two articles and two books on the subject:
Vladimir Berkhin, the article “Non-working post”: “Petrov is fasting now, and this once again provokes a discussion – what is a fasting and why is it needed, and how does refusal of fast food and spiritual work correlate, and is fasting necessary in summer, and even every year is different, and so on. "
Priest Alexander Permyakov, the article “Five reasons why our mission is ineffective”: “In Petrov's post, you want to think not only and not so much about the lean kitchen, but about the work begun by the holy apostles Peter and Paul – to spread the teachings of Christ. About why Orthodox missionary today is not popular and not effective. ”
"Time left. Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans ”is the book of one of the leading contemporary philosophers, Giorgio Agamben: and when modern philosophy turns to Scripture, it is always joyful. Here, primitive Christianity, as we can understand it from the Epistles of Paul, is described as a messianic community that radically undermines all the structures of this world, which immobilizes every law. We present several hypotheses of Agamben:
– For the first time, rhyme in poetry was used by Christians, and moreover, the first approach to this can be found in the apostle Paul. Rhyme is the literary application of messianism. And the fact that rhyme has gone from modern poetry is a consequence of atheism. Aprosodia is atheology.
– Usually, the “mystery of lawlessness” is understood as the coming of the Antichrist, and the “restraining” (Roman empire or power in general) as a kind of good force protecting against the Antichrist. However, Paul is the one who declared the Messianic disruption of the Law: in other words, the “mystery of lawlessness” is that the Law is no longer in force, this “mystery” is that Parousia is close. And the fact that “holds” this “secret” is not something good, but, on the contrary, something anti-messianic. Pavlov's statements about the “mystery of lawlessness” and “restraint” cannot serve to substantiate the “Christian doctrine of power”, but, on the contrary, can serve to the contrary. "The mystery of lawlessness" is that any power is illegitimate and the disclosure of this mystery is kept by the forces of the world. Paul’s “lawlessness” is not “sin,” but “not the law.”
– The Marxist understanding of the proletariat goes back to Pavlov's understanding of the Messianic community (the Church).
“The Apostle Paul is a man and a teacher in the light of the Jewish sources” (text and audio version) – the book of Risto Santala, who studies the New Testament in the light of the Jewish tradition. He writes that “after a 45-year voyage on the boundless sea of Jewish literature, he ventured into the dangerous and abundant underwater cliffs of the water of Pavlovo scholarship”.
"The anthropology of the game" – a course of lectures of a bright Ukrainian philosopher and theologian Alexander Filonenko: the theology of the Game. The divine creation of the world, and for what game did God create man? Who actually built the Soviet space program for the colonization of space? And much more.
“Philosophy and Anthropology of Music” – course (12 lectures) by Lyudmila Gribanova, where she talks about music not as an art of emotion, affect, of some kind of content, but as a deeper phenomenon connected with the ultimate, intimate, deeply internal manifestations of Man – happiness, ruin, horror, striving beyond one’s own boundaries. This approach is a new understanding of music based on a new understanding of man in the flow of synergetic anthropology – the flow of non-classical philosophy. As a comparison, other philosophical concepts of music are presented, presented in the context of classical and preclassical philosophical anthropology and philosophy of art.
We posted a lot of new lectures from the courses of Vladimir Sorokin on the Books of Kings and the Book of Proverbs, as well as from the most interesting course “Torah in the New Testament”.
“Foreign Women and Foreigners in Byzantium” – a mini-course of the Byzantine scholar Roman Shlyakhtin: Foreigners in the New Rome; Ambassadors and ambassadors. Princess Olga and Liutprand of Cremona; Where the Vikings, there are strained. Prince Sfendoslav, Varangians and X-XI century foreigners; Empire of foreigners. The Comneni revolution and the new order; Russian tourists in Constantinople. From Anthony Novgorod to Nestor Iskender.
The Game of Beads is the main novel of Hermann Hesse, one of the main works of the 20th century. The Bead Game describes Kastalia, the “ideal” country of intellectuals. Philosopher Marina Mikhailova recommends this book to the Predanya.ru audience in the following words:
I read the Bead Game in those times when I was not a church man at all, but thanks to this story I realized how wonderful faith and spiritual life and a certain path that unfolds through faith and trust, through spiritual effort. It seems to me, “The Game of Beads” is a very useful book for believers. ”

“This book was published in the 70s and in a sense can be considered a monument of church history thought, but this is precisely what makes it interesting. It is interesting that a church person wrote her, a dissident, by the way, for whom the pains of the church were not abstractions, which he considered necessary to mean. ”
“Prosecution evidence: the church and the state in the Soviet Union” is a book by Protodeacon Vladimir Rusak, for which he was sentenced to 7 years of high security camps and 5 years of exile. The historian Sergey Firsov recommends this book to the “Predanya.ru” audience in the following words:
“There is a biased but important book of the deacon Vladimir Rusak“ Evidence of accusation: the church and state in the Soviet Union ”. For this book, the author was imprisoned at the end of the Soviet period. At that time, this book was something amazing — not official, not official. The author spoke about how to evaluate the activities of the Soviet government in relation to the Russian Orthodox Church. This is also a kind of monument of church history thought, but such a monument, which should not be forgotten. ”
