Vladimir Solovyev was born in 1853, the son of the historian Sergius Mikhailovich Solovyev. At the age of twenty-one he was made junior professor in the University of Moscow, where he remained for seven years until his lectures gave the authorities the excuse they needed to dismiss a man whose western sympathies had made him unpopular. The rest of his life was spent writing and travelling. In 1896 he was received into the Roman Catholic Church and died four years later in 1900.
