The article deals with the attitude to the issues of guilt and responsibility in the Russian culture of the XIX and XX centuries as well as with their transformation in the present. This topic is considered with reference to the centenary of the Russian revolution in terms of comprehending the ways out from the anthropological catastrophe of the XX century. The author takes as the basic Russian idea F. M. Dostoevsky’s thought about everyone’s guilt for everything and traces its development and echoes in the writings of other authors, churchmen and society figures.
Keywords: guilt, responsibility, repentance, Dostoevsky, Russian culture,
