The article attempts to discover elements of the predicant and confessional dimensions in D. Merezhkovsky’s social publications of 1905—1908. The predicant intention surfaces when the author strives to establish the idea of the Third Testament or the Kingdom of the Holy Spirit, finding its implementation in tendentious perception of biblical verses, interpretation and resolution of contradictions, as well as the construction of an optimistic perspective. His open letter to N. Berdiaev clearly exhibits a confessional streak, combining elements of a confessional letter, an intellectual autobiography, as well as a socially oriented sermon and article.
