Chapter О культурных предпосылках ‘итальянского’ правового дискурса Сергея Ивановича Зарудного
The paper is about Sergej Ivanovič Zarudnyj, a central figure in Tsar Alexander II’s “great reforms”. Descended from the family of a Cossack staršyna from Sloboda Ukraine, Zarudnyj had a brillant career in the imperial capital as a engaged reformer of Russia’s backwards legal system. His cultural origins, his family’s history, and his education at Kharkiv University deeply affected his translation work and legal discourse; in both of these spheres, he aimed to introduce and popularize the products of Italian legal culture in the Russian Empire.
KeywordsSergej Zarudnyj; legal reform; Alexander II; Great Reforms; administrative elite
