This chapter discusses the development of anti-Orthodox and anti-Russian sentiment in France. It explains the anti-Orthodox and anti-Russian sentiment after 1830 within the context of the schools of thought that divided French Catholics in the nineteenth century and the geopolitical tensions between France and Russia. It analyzes Russia's place in the European schema that has been a question at the forefront of the minds of European rulers, statesmen, clergy, intellectuals, political radicals, and revolutionaries since Peter I. The chapter addresses how the questions on Russia's place produced a presupposition of some kind of dichotomous relationship between Russia and the West. It also mentions the Slavophile–Westerner debate among nineteenth-century Russian intellectuals, which perceives Russia's relation to the West dichotomy as a construction of Russian intellectuals.

Keywords:   anti-Orthodox sentiment, anti-Russian sentiment, French Catholics, European schema, Peter I, Slavophile–Westerner debate, Russian intellectuals
