In Western Marxist theory the concept of hegemony is often used in a Gramscian sense as a dominance of class-cultural values and attitudes which can either generate or hinder revolutionary struggle. Cultural values, however, as much as they can be class-based can also be based on other totalising phenomena such as religion. The paper discusses religion as the basis of cultutal hegemony in Russia at the time of the revolution and its role as one of the factors contributing to its success.
