Chekhov separates the dogma of tradition from the essence of Christianity and depicts the various effects of faith in the lives of the faithful. Biblical Subtexts and Religious Themes in Works of Anton Chekhov elucidates biblical parallels of Chekhovian themes and demonstrates Chekhov’s dialogue with religious beliefs as it is played out in a number of his classic stories.
