Lachman’s latest work explores how mystical and spiritual influences have shaped Russia’s identity and politics, and what it means for our future. At the turn of the 20th century, Russia was undergoing a powerful spiritual and cultural rebirth. It was a time of magic and mysticism that saw a resurgence of interest in the occult and a creative intensity not seen in the West since the Renaissance. This was the time of the God-Seekers, pilgrims of the soul and explorers of the spirit who sought the salvation of the world through art and ideas. These sages and their visions of Holy Russia are returning to prominence now through Russian president Vladimir Putin, who, inspired by their ideas, envisions a new ‘Eurasian’ civilization with Russia as its leader.
