Abstract

The effectiveness of modern religious studies is largely determined by how deeply rooted in it the anthropological dimensions of cultural phenomena, their meaningful renewal. In this context, great opportunities open up to one of the basic structural religious entities - the psychology of religion, where the semantic nucleus of religiosity is most clearly highlighted. After all, if we try to look at the process of secularization, then we will undoubtedly pay attention to the fact that for the longest time religion is "delayed" in the sphere of the inner life of man, at the level of his experiences. It is here that religion acts as a factor that mitigates borderline situations of human existence (serious illness, death of loved ones, physical and moral suffering, etc.).
