Civic Church and Civic Religion: Ukrainian Context


  • Anna Slubska



The Revolution of Dignity and the events on Independence Square entered the newest history of Ukraine and for many years gave material for reflection not only to historians, political scientists and sociologists, but also to religious scholars. It is precisely on the Maidan that the phenomenon of not only the long-awaited civil society, but also directly related to it the phenomena of religious life - the civil religion and the civil church - have become a phenomenon. The religious factor once again in the history of independent Ukraine has shown its significant influence on public life and political processes in the country.
