Studies on Johann Caspar Lavater (1741-1801) in Russia


Prof. Edmund Heier

The present collection of articles and documents deals with Lavater's reception in Russia. Apart from noting his relation to prominent Russians and Paul I, the emphasis is on the influence of his edifying and physiognomic views - much of which is based on little known material.
Contents: Lavater und der russische Zarenhof - Russian Publications on Physiognomy and Phrenology - Lavaters Begegnung mit dem Großfürsten Paul Petrovich, etc.
