Abstract: The aim of the publication is to acquaint the Polish reader with a fragment of the most famous book by Tatiana M. Goricheva, Holy Animals (published in Saint Petersburg in 1993), which has not been translated into Polish so far. The author of the book is one of the few Russian‑ speaking thinkers dealing both with Orthodox Christianity and the question of animal rights. The attached commentary offers an introduction to her philosophy, which is here presented at the broad background of Eastern Orthodox thinking. In contradistinction to Western theology, it is the tradition that discusses the Christian idea of redemption in cosmic terms and points to the possibility of religious identification and sanctification of animals. Therefore, it seems that the Eastern Orthodox interpretation of the Christian doctrine provides a different perspective on the situation of animals and their suffering in the contemporary world and may lead to action to secure their status as individual subjects.
