Sofia as an Image of Eternal Feminine in the Philosophy of V. S. Solovyov

The paper understands the image of Sophia as the eternal feminine in the concept of V. S. Solovyov, analyzes the preconditions for emergence of the image, and also examines the role of femininity in the context of development of Russian religious philosophy. Sophia can exist in two main forms, the created and the uncreated that makes the key issue in analysis of Solovyov’s philosophical views the understanding that both forms of Sofia are relevant only to the world, separated from God.
