This is the first detailed study of Tolstoy's Soedinenie i perevod chetyrek evangelii (Union and Translation of the Four Gospels), a work he regarded as his finest and most important scholarly endeavor. One of the theses of this book is that Tolstoy's gospel did not lead to his religious views, but that his views gave rise to his gospels.
