TUGAN-BARANOVSKII, Mikhail Ivanovich.
Величайшая въ мірѣ коммунистическая организація (Община Духоборовъ) [Velichaishaia v mire kommunisticheskaia organizatsiia (Obshchina Dukhoborov)].
Rare Russian language tract on ‘The Greatest Communist Society in the World (Doukhobor Society),’ which left Russia for Canada in 1898-9, aided by Leo Tolstoy. Opening with a brief history of the pacifist sect, Tugan-Baranovsky mentions their customs, recounting numerous ethnographical details such as how children would address their mother as ‘Nanny’ and their father as ‘Old Man’, their beliefs, and the reasons for their emigration, giving details of the arrival of the sect in its new home and the process of settlement. The text concludes with an examination of the compatibility of the doctrines of the sect, which described itself as a ‘Christian society of peaceful brotherhood’, with the tenets of Communism.
