Abstract: The Florenskian text, here being subjected to our reactions and reflections, takes us back to Pavel Aleksandrovic Florenskij’s lectures in the Summer and Autumn of 1921 at the Moscovite Theological Academy. There are two versions of these lectures, Florenskij’s own brief notes, and a more complete transcription by his students. The text I was asked to react to is the latter. Florenskij’s personal notes are only published in Russian, in volume three of the Complete Works.1 The student’s transcriptions have also been published in Italian and in English.2 The context is that of the great famine which lasted till 1922 and which left no less than five million victims. This famine, as others in Russian history, was the result of the economic disruption sparked during World War I and amplified through four instabilities brought by, namely: the Russian Revolution; the Russian Civil War; the War Communism policy which started in 1918 and included the confiscation of religious property; the Bolshevik food apportionment policy which was made worse by inefficient rail systems that were unable to distribute food resourcefully. The 1921-1922 drought, then, aggravated the state of affairs to a national famine calamity.
