Sex and Spirituality in Russia

As I've noted before, questions of sex and gender are all the rage in religious studies today--though such studies for the Christian East still lag behind the many such studies on Western Christianity. Now Brill brings out a new book remedying this in part:

Crone's volume focuses on the work of Vladimir Solovyov, Vasily Rozanov, Nikolai Berdyaev, and Boris Vysheslavtsev, arguing that in the aftermath of Freud, these four work to re-emphasize Christianity as a religion of flesh and spirit. I've asked Judith Deutsch Kornblatt of the U. of Wisconsin's Dept. of Slavic Languages and Literature to review this in Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies in 2012.
