Re-Imagination of Religion in Post-Soviet Society: Challenges and Responses (Russian and Ukrainian Case Studies)

Show Summary Details

Preview

This article examines post-Soviet types of religious development and re-imagining of religion based on the case studies of two post-Soviet countries—Russia and Ukraine. The comparative analysis of these two cases has been focused on issues that could expose the current religious situation which is influenced by the common Soviet and pre-Soviet past and new current trends of social development in two independent states. This analysis aims to answer the question to what extent the religious imagination is connected to social context.
