New Trends in World Understanding, Worldview, Practical Activity of Late Protestant Confessions in Ukraine


  • Petro Yarotskiy



The study of processes and trends in the development of Protestant denominations in Ukraine is one of the most important areas of Ukrainian academic religious studies. These Protestant currents occupy a prominent place in the modern religious life of Ukraine and generally constitute a rather powerful segment of the Ukrainian confessional field. Some sayings of the so-called historical (or traditional) churches - the Orthodox and Catholic, and, after them, separate representatives of the socio-political wing of Ukrainian society and the media, traditionally or tendentiously, call Baptists, Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, the "Sectarians" of the 19th Century, despite the changes that have taken place in these denominations over the past 20 years.
