On the Interaction between Religious and Secular Education under Current Conditions
Zborovskii, Garol'd Efimovich; Kostina, Nataliia Borisovna
Russian Education and Society, v46 n9 p63-75 Sep 2004
In the final decades of the twentieth century there was a considerable increase in the scale of religious education in Russia. Inasmuch as the targets of influence of religious institutions are citizens of Russia who profess a particular religion, the activities of the institutions have to be carried out on the basis of laws in force in Russia, in particular the federal laws "On Freedom of Conscience and on Religious Associations" and "On Education." When it comes to relations between religious associations and the state, between religious and nonreligious citizens, what is most important is "to find forms of optimal interaction between secular and religious upbringing and education, and to find the allowable limits of the influence of religious upbringing on the educational process conducted in secular educational institutions." This is the focus of the present article, centering on information about "Orthodox" education. The authors used findings of an empirical study conducted in the School of Theology of the Diocese of Ekaterinburg, which was converted to a theological seminary in 2001; the methods used are interviews, questioning of experts, document analysis, and a survey of Orthodox parishioners in the city of Ekaterinburg.
