Report by Teresa Obolevich: Mirra Lot-Borodina and the Russian Religious Philosophy
On September 29, 2020, within the framework of the academic and educational seminar "West and East: Universalism of Culture" there was made a report by Professor Teresa Obolevich, the leading research fellow at the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue
The report reviewed the scientific contacts of Mirra Ivanovna Lot-Borodina, an outstanding Orthodox theologian who worked in France, with Russian religious philosophers such as L. Shestov, N. Berdyaev, Sergiy Bulgakov, and S. Frank. Thanks to their creative communication, Russian emigrant philosophers received not only material and spiritual support, but also the opportunity for full-fledged philosophical discussions, as a result of which their views were formed. Lot-Borodina herself should be considered a bright representative of Russian thought, namely, the neo-patristic synthesis. She was also the author of reviews of works by Russian philosophers and greatly contributed to the popularization of their thought in France.
