This is the first investigation of the history of Russian Freemasonry, based on the premise that the facts of the Russian Enlightenment preclude application of the interpretative framework commonly used for the history of western thought. Coverage includes the development of early Russian masonry, the formation of the Novikov circle in Moscow, the `programme' of Rosicrucianism and its Russian variant and, finally, the clash between the Rosicrucians and the State.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the pre-publication reviews:
"...this is a valuable contribution to scholarship and fully worthy of publication. It should have a wide appeal to those with a general interest in the history of European freemasonry in the eighteenth century, Enlightenment studies, and Russian eighteenth-century history as well as to specialists in Muscovite Rosicrucianism and the development of Russian social thought."

"It is a work of immense scholarly distinction and demands to be published. Professor Faggionato has to a large degree undertaken to rewrite the history of Russian Freemasonry, in particular of the Novikov circle, and she does it persuasively, sensitively, convincingly."
