Filozofija I Društvo 19 (2):81-115 (2008)

This article is the sequel to the author's text in the previous issue of the magazine 'Philosophy and Society'. The author discusses the evolution of religious consciousness among the population of Russia and the mutual relationship between society, religion and church describing it as a sort of religious balance. By examining the motion of the balance, the author analyzes the religious situation and the confessional structure of tzarist, soviet and modern Russia. Three types of confessional structure may be postulated during the period in question: a stable confessional structure of pre-revolutionary Russia, a destabilized confessional structure in soviet time, a restabilized structure during the nineties of the previous century, and a new stabilized confessional structure in recent years. Ovaj prilog je nastavak autorovog teksta iz proslog broja casopisa 'Filozofija i drustvo'. U prilogu autor razmatra evoluciju religijske svesti ruskog stanovnistva i medjusobni odnos drustva, religije i crkve predstavljajuci je u vidu svojevrsnog religijskog klatna. Ispitujuci kretanje pomenutog klatna autor analizira religijsku situaciju i vernicku strukturu carske, sovjetske i savremene Rusije. U tom dugom vremenskom periodu mogu se postulirati tri tipa vernicke strukture: stabilna vernicku strukturu dorevolucionarne Rusije, destabilizovana vernicka strukture u sovjetsko vreme, restabilizovana struktura tokom 90-ih godina proslog veka i nova stabilizovana vernicka struktura poslednjih godina.
