Elena Fedorovna Pisareva

The Light of the Russian Soul


In this fascinating memoir, Elena Pisareva provides perhaps the only personal account of the Russian Theosophical Society from its beginning in the late 1800s to its dissolution in the mid-20th century. She vividly portrays Anna Kamensky’s struggle to establish and maintain the group amidst internal pressures and a hostile prerevolutionary government. Harrowing stories depict the members’ persecution and their flight from the Red Army. Pisareva’s invaluable perspective, faithful reporting, and flair for detail make this a must-read for Russian history buffs.
