Austin Jersild and Neli Melkadze – The Dilemmas of Enlightenment in the Eastern Borderlands: The Theater and Library in Tbilisi

This made perfect sense for a Russia that was itself an eastern borderland of a Europe understood by many Russians since the 18th century to be the primary source of their own unfolding “enlightenment” and cultural progress.
