The textbook offers a wide picture of the world, where both freethinking and faith find their place. That is why religious studies ensure a dialogue with science: theology, philosophy, psychology, culturology, and history.

The book regards religion as an object of knowledge and as a spiritual phenomenon. The author attempts at revealing its essence as a cultural anthropological phenomenon. A characteristic of world religions is given. Much attention is paid to the psychological aspects of religion. It also contains extracts fro the works of leading thinkers who studied this phenomenon.

 

The textbook is meant for students, specialists and for all interested in religion.
