This paper will examine the radical right in the Russian Empire between 1900 and 1914. In particular, it will consider whether the groups that emerged can be more usefully considered to be radicals or conservatives, and what the appearance of these groups tell us about the instability of the Tsarist regime and the wider crisis in Russian conservatism in the years immediately preceding the First World War.

country and regional level, tailor-made public policy suggestions to improve the level of entrepreneurship and optimize resource allocation over the different pillars of entrepreneurship.

Miraculous Icons and Bolshevik Power

In 1932 an activist in the League of Militant Godless declared that the ‘icon is the centre of the counter-revolutionary movement’, a hyperbolic claim to be sure, but one that testifies to the symbolic potency of the icon in Russian religious culture. The talk will ask why there was an unprecedented discovery of thousands of ‘self-renewing’ icons in the 1920s and will explore the meaning of this for believers. It will look also at the attempts by the Soviet authorities to curb this wave of miracles through a mix of science and coercion and, during the years of  collectivization, a brief resort to iconoclasm
