Filozofija I Društvo 22 (1):167-192 (2011)

This article is the first part of a broader study about the?Russian messianism? that is usually considered as a persistent phenomenon of crucial importance at various times in Russian history. In the focus of the author?s concern is emergence of the mediaeval doctrine?Moscow, the Third Rome?. This doctrine was formulated in an epistle of the monk Filofei, the elder of Eleazarov monastery in Pskov. Religious background and historical context of the idea?Moscow, the Third Rome? are analyzed in view of the fact that Filofei?s doctrine from XVI Century has remained fundamental pattern for all latter modifications of messianic ideas in the course of Russian history. Ovaj rad je deo vece studije posvecene fenomenu ruskog mesijanizma koji je cesto smatran sustinski vaznim faktorom u interpretacijama istorije Rusije. U sredistu autorove paznje je nastanak ucenja o Moskvi kao?Trecem Rimu?. Detaljno je analizirana religijska osnova i istorijski kontekst formulisanja ove ideje u Poslanicama monaha Filoteja. Interpretaciji ove izvorne doktrine o?Trecem Rimu? posvecen je centralni deo rada jer su se na nju pozivale sve kasnije modifikacije ideje o mesijanskoj ulozi Rusije u svetskoj istoriji.
