Civic Religion in the Context of Ukrainian and Russian Political Realities


  • Iryna Bogachevska



The notion of "civil religion" today in public opinion and socio-humanitarian research is increasingly called complex processes of social transformation involving religious factors that take place in the post-Soviet space, in particular in its "traditionally Orthodox" segment. If in the twentieth century. most of the scientific reflections on the phenomenon of civic religion were made in the context of American society, today the turbulent processes of building national states in the post-Soviet territories have led to a shift in the scientific interest in this issue in Eastern European realities.
