Study of Religion in Modern Russian Education System: Problems and Prospects
This paper investigates the problem of studying religious disciplines in the system of modern Russian education. The study of religion in modern Russian schools and universities is noted to be essential for the comprehensive development of the individual. However, this requires a balanced approach. The authors' point of view is that in state educational institutions only religious studies, not theological education, are possible; they will inform the youth on the history of world religions, their dogmas, traditions and today's life of religious communities from scientific and objective positions.
