APRES MOI, LE ROI: Is There Monarchy in Russia’s future?

We present the latest essay from Paul Merkley. Paul discusses the idea that Russia might move towards a monarchy. This new essay is reprinted by permission of Paul and from The Bayview Review. See the links at the end for direct access to the rest of Paul’s work that we have published.

Not the least of the many dramatic ways in which President Vladimir Putin has transformed Russia is his restitution of the eminent  place in public life of the Russian Orthodox Church. This is by no means an unmixed blessing—either for them or for us. But it is a fact that we would be foolish to ignore.

Anyone with a modicum of acquaintance with Russian history will see at once the logic that restoration of the church has automatically led to consideration of the logic of restoration of the monarchy.
