In this article, I explore Vasilii Zenkovskii’s contributions to the historiography of Russian intellectual history in his two monographs Russian Thinkers and Europe (1922) and The History of Russian Philosophy (1948–1950). These works are examined with particular reference to the problem of «Russia and Europe». I discuss not just Zenkovskii’s own interpretation of this theme as a central topic in the history of Russian thought, but also how his historical narratives are further contributions to this question. Zenkovskii’s own histories are read as a response to previous discussions of Russia’s relationship with Europe as well as an attempt to reframe this theme in a new, post-revolutionary situation. More specifically, I analyse the way in which Zenkovskii creates a particular dialectical idea of the relationship between Russia and Europe and of the border between them.
