(p.45) Chapter 2 The Archpriest as Publicist and Polemicist
The Public Image of Eastern Orthodoxy

Cornell University Press

This chapter focuses on the early efforts of the two priest-publicists, Vasiliev and Guettée, to challenge anti-Orthodox prejudices. After recounting the circumstances that led the two priests to found the first Orthodox periodical in the West in 1859 called L'Union chrétienne, the chapter discusses the most significant polemical works of Vasiliev. It analyzes Vasiliev's letters to two French bishops and the French historian François Guizot. It talks about Russian publicists that utilized the relative freedom of the press in western Europe to promote their visions of Russia's national interests. It also describes Orthodox publicists that had to contend with a western press that was hostile to Russia.

Keywords:   Vasiliev, Guettée, anti Orthodox prejudices, L'Union chrétienne, François Guizot, Russian publicists, Orthodox publicists
