The Russian Religious Philosopher Nikolai Alexandrovich Berdyaev (Berdiaev) was
a prolific writer, both before his exile from Russia in 1922, and afterwards in the West
until his death in 1948.
The 1978 IMKA Press "Berdiaev Bibliographie" by Tamara Klepinine lists a total
of 483 books and articles by Berdyaev, not including those "sans signature" or under
a pseudonym. A significant portion of this corpus or works remains difficult to find,
even in Russian, and remains untranslated into English. But the Internet has made for
dramatic changes.Much that was inaccessible is gradually becoming accessible, but
scattered about and discovered often only by chance. Hence the need to attempt to
"bring order into chaos", -- following the example set mankind the footsteps of the
Divine Lord (though some chaos is necessary for life's destiny)...
Berdyaev English Works Bibliography -- the 1998 Revised Version, provides a
chronological Listing to Berdyaev's Works, translated into English: this includes both
Books and Journal Articles written "by" Berdyaev, and the primary Books written
"about" Berdyaev in English.
Николай Бердяев Библиография (Я. Кротов) -- the (in Russian) Bibliographie
of Berdyaev's Russian Writings (including also Online E-text transcriptions), by our

Vide also his Krotov Bibliotek Webpage, in Russian, English and Italian, with
additional materials on Berdyaev, Fr. A. Men', and much else.
Berdyaev English Webpage -- by our esteemed American colleague, Dirk Kelder.
The present Webpage is intended as a "Resources Supplemental Appendice" to this
top-level and quite excellent Berdyaev Homepage.
Other primary E-text Sites for "by" Berdyaev Works, in addition to the present site,
are (primarily in Russian): the Moscow St. Philaret Institute, Khristian Literatura,
and www.philosophy.ru (this last has an extensive and growing Philosophy Bibliotek
selection also of both Western and ancient philosophic works in Russian).
Berdyaev Book Sources -- the avid student of Berdyaev may wish to peruse this
in securing materials, whether English or Russian, not available Online or elsewhere.
