Abstract

The phenomenon of religious expertise has already received its interpretation from different points of view (legal, religious studies, theological, and others). This study proposes to integrate the problems of this expertise into the horizon of a universal theory of interpretation - philosophical hermeneutics. One of the advantages of this approach is that it allows you to accurately "diagnose" the main contradiction of theological examination - the opposite of "dogmatic" and "reflexive" experiences of understanding. It is here (in this examination) that this contrast manifests itself most acutely, and the participation in it of the indicated hermeneutics makes it possible to remove the mutual negation of these antagonists.
