A summary of Book V: Pro and Contra, Chapter 5: The Grand Inquisitor in Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov. Learn exactly what happened in this chapter, scene, or section of The Brothers Karamazov and what it means.

Perfect for acing essays, tests, and quizzes, as well as for writing lesson plans. “The Grand Inquisitor” is situated within a novel, but its parable structure qualifies it as a distinct philosophical treatise. Ivan’s recitation of the second coming of Christ, and the hostility with which the modern world would meet it, mirrors Dostoevsky’s own skepticism about organized religion.

The Grand Inquisitor takes up only about a third of this volume. The remainder is filled with selections from The House of the Dead, based on Dostoyevsky’s experiences in the prison camp at Omsk, Siberia.

The young Dostoyevsky had been sentenced to death for his membership of the liberal/utopian Petrashevsky Circle. He was reprieved literally /5(46). The Grand Inquisitor is a story contained in the novel The Karamazov Brothers of the Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky ().

This is one of the highlights of the novel and a remarkable philosophical tale of modern literature dealing with human nature, freedom and manipulation (mental or political)/5. The Grand Inquisitor's scheme, at least, provides an earthly happiness for the mass of mankind even though it will not lead to eternal salvation.

On the other hand, Christ's method would not have saved these same weak and puny men either. When he finishes, the Grand Inquisitor looks at Christ, who has remained silent the entire time.
