Early Enlightenment in Russia and Ukraine: The Life and Legacy of Archbishop Feofan Prokopovych (1681-1736)

Research and writing leading to publication of the first English-language biography of Russian archbishop Feofan Prokopovych (1681-1736).

This project will fund 7 months of research leave (archival travel and writing) to complete the intellectual biography of Archbishop Feofan Prokopovych (1681-1736). Prokopovych, this book project argues, played a foundational role in introducing the ideas of the Early Enlightenment (Frühaufklärung) and many of the paradigmatic models of Europe’s Scientific Revolutions first in Ukraine, and then, in Russia. Completing the first English-language biography of this fascinating astronomer, mathematician, jurist, linguist and natural philosopher will help us understand better the impact of key Western intellectual developments in the early Russian Empire.
