Abstract.

The subject of this study is an episode from the social and political life of the 1860s: the funeral of the famous critic and journalist Dmitry Ivanovich Pisarev (1840-1868), held on July 29, 1868 at the Volkovo Cemetery (St. Petersburg). The author reconstructs in detail, for the first time in historiography, the events of that day and introduces many new sources into scientific circulation, in particular, the speeches of the funeral attendees F. F. Pavlenkov and P. A. Gaideburov. The episode itself is presented in the context of the tradition of “funeral” demonstrations, which originated in Russia on the wave of a social upheaval in the post-reform era. At the base of the author's work lies the historical-genetic, historical-comparative, historical-systemic and problem-analytical methods of historical research. The quarrel at the grave of Pisarev is interpreted by the author as a sign of a crisis in the practice of funeral public protest - a crisis caused by the increased participation, the weak self-organization of the revolutionary movement, as well as the ambiguity of Pisarev's figure. This crisis was overcome by the middle of the next decade, when the funerals of the populists P. F. Chernyshev (1876), A. A. Padlevsky (1878), and the poet N. A. Nekrasov (1877) turned into real political demonstrations.
