Summary/Abstract: Reforms which took place in Russia in the sixties of 19th century had a serious impact on Orthodox clergy. It resulted in „a new type of clergyman” appearing. A tendency to be more secular and liberal in the outlook and appearance was distinctive for this type of clergyman. The article treats of one of the first literary work where the main hero is one of „the new clergymen”. The most important problem is the way of introducing new social phenomena to the literature, using tricks and techniques common for the Natural School.
