The diffusion of Kant philosophy in Russian culture was significantly premature: even orthodox ecclesiastic Academies were involved in this process, despite the strict censorship, which defended metaphysics and theological traditions. History and sources of Ecclesiastic Academics philosophy are also analysed through two authors’ works (I.Ja. Vetrinskij and P.D. Jurkevic), which explain the awareness of an essential comparison to the criticism. The inquiry about the reception is analysed in an appendix about the complex evolution of Kantian studies during the decades of the Soviet regime.
