Abstract

A significant factor in the social development of the present is the strengthening of the position of religion, including a certain increase in the socio-political influence of religious institutions, which for a long time were eliminated on the periphery of public life. According to S. Huntington, the acquisition of the religion of the present situation in society is caused by the crisis of identity through social changes in modernizing societies. Raising the role of religion is also a reaction to atheism, moral relativism and indulgence in its weaknesses in the affirmation of the value of order, discipline, labor, mutual assistance and human solidarity.
