Noul și sublimul bizantinism rusesc

Cu ocazia deciziei Italiei de a dezvolta un program de cooperare economică cu Rusia mi-am adus aminte de articolul:

Nous nous sommes sans aucun doute écartés du problème du mouvement du prolétariat moderne afin d’établir que, si l’on veut le définir comme une Byzance, il ne faut pas s’en prendre uniquement aux socialistes italiens de cette moitié de siècle, mais à ceux de tous les pays depuis qu’on s’est mis à parler de socialisme.

Une Byzance socialiste?!

Pe 5 martie președintele Putin declara la conferința comună cu premierul italian:

Russian-Italian relations rest on the rich traditions of long-term friendship and mutual respect. Italy is one of Russia’s most important partners in European affairs and in resolving pressing international issues.

Today’s talks with Prime Minister Renzi took place in an atmosphere of goodwill and constructive dialogue, typical for Russian-Italian relations. Our conversation was very useful and timely, given the current situation in Europe and the world at large.

We discussed the state of our bilateral relations and of relations between Russia and the European Union. We spoke for their further development, which would meet the interests of Russia and the EU member states. Sursa

Ca să poată rezista pe termen lung unei confruntări cu Europa, Rusia trebuie să dezvolte un nou front politic, cine, cum și cât va fi implicată Europa politică rămâne să vedem. Ce partide europene se vor sincroniza la noul bizantinism rusesc, la fel, rămâne să vedem.

Însă în Italia evoluția este chiar mai sofisticată:

At the beginning of the twenty-first century a new rapprochement can be observed between the Russian state (looking for a unifying national idea) and the Russian Orthodox Church (looking to recover its past prestige) for the sake of mutual support. In the Church’s recent documents this type of relationship is called so-rabotnichestvo (collaboration).70

Russian diplomatic institutions also emphasize their support for the Church’s politics. Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov, in his address to the World Russian People’s Council, stated: ‘We attribute particular attention to our collaboration with the Russian Orthodox Church [ . . .] This collaboration corresponds to one of the oldest and most profound traditions of our diplomacy’.71

Th e decision of Russian authorities to open a new orthodox church within the walls of the Russian ambassador’s residence in Rome is one example of this tradition. The official site of the Russian embassy under-lines that this decision is ‘a very important moment in Russian-Italian relations and will favour their further development [ . . .] as well as the dialogue between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Holy See’.72

The rapport between Russia and the Holy See seems to be another manifestation of the impact produced by the old ‘symphony’ tradition.

Bizantinism peste tot.
