Summary

One of the most well-known and discussed conversations in literature is that between the Inquisitor and the Messiah as it takes place in the Fyodor Dostoevsky's masterpiece The Brothers Karamazov. Anne Fremantle writes: ''The Grand Inquisitor promises man, as Satan promised Christ in the desert, everything in exchange for the one thing that makes man man: freedom, this terrible, absolute freedom of man's will to choose or to reject at any and every moment what his own conscience shows him to be a moral good. Wearied by this continual, uninterrupted, and inescapable act of choice which alone makes possible both the act of 'free love' and the anti-social act of injustice, the Grand Inquisitor has set out to establish 'universal happiness'--in the name of Christ, as he tells his followers--for the sake of 'positive Christianity,' as the Nazis proclaimed in their program.''
