Abstract

 In the article the ideas of hristian anthropology, which are the basis of conception of F.M. Dostoevsky’s novel «The Brothers Karamazov», are expressed. The motive of «ordeals» that Dmitriy Karamazov goes through during the preliminary investigation is investigated. The motive is used to express the main idea of the novel - possibility of person’s spiritual renovation, regardless of his depravity, even in conditions of moral decline of society. Though the character is pleaded guilty by «publicans» - vicious judges, from the stand-point of orthodox humanism, from this very moment his spiritual renovation begins.
