TY - JOUR TI - Religious Europe, Russia and Serbia past and present: Arguments of empirical evidence: The case of Russia AU - Blagojević Mirko JN - Filozofija i drustvo PY - 2008 VL - 19 IS - 2 SP - 81 EP - 115 PT- Article AB- 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.
