Abstract :
Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Devils is not a novel with predominantly religious themes. However, it does have an indirect religious theme, namely the nonexistence of God and its ethical consequences for human beings. This theme is present as a metaphysical background to the thoughts and actions of the main characters. Moreover, the novel acquires an explicitly religious accent in two chapters that deal with fundamental Christian themes.
