The breadth and depth of his essays, as well as his role as the major theoretician of religious symbolism, had a great impact on the beliefs and poetics of the next generation of post-symbolist poets, particularly on the Acmeists and Futurists.
According to one critic, Ivanov tried to reconcile too many different roles; to poets he appeared a prophet, to philosophers an artist, and to orthodox believers, a priest without God and without a church.
