Abstract
The authors of the article believe that it is wrongful to call Dostoevsky as a mouthpiece of the essence of Christianity, "an outstanding orthodox Apostle". In the researchers' opinion, it is impossible to reply decisively to the question whether the litterateur was a believer. Besides in the article there are examples of methodological limitation of strictly religious view to Dostoevsky's heritage, which impersonalize his polycontextual and multilateral work. The authors express the hypothesis, according to which Dostoevsky's poetics is only skilfully written into the Christian context, and his works are closed for knowing. Besides, the novels "The Idiot" and "The Brothers Karamazov" are considered briefly in the article, as the works having an inner Antichristian meaning of sorts.

Keywords: atheism, criticism of Christianity, criticism of church, Dostoevsky's work, Grand Inquisitor, Knyazh Myshkin, methodological limitation
