    The course aims to form to form a holistic understanding of religion as a form of public conscience, its social functions and role in the history of mankind. The specific tasks of teaching are: • to form an idea about the peculiarities of religion in comparison with other forms of social mind, about the place of religion and religious institutions in the process of the formation of society and the state; • to provide an understanding of the different types of religions and their interrelationships; • to acquaint the students with the basic concepts and categories of religious studies, theories and directions of studying the history of the world religions; • to review and analyze the process of formation and development of world religions. The course includes three modules: "Christianity", "World Religions of the East: Islam and Buddhism", "History of the Russian Orthodox Church" Module 1 "Christianity aims to form a general idea of the peculiarities of Christianity as a world religion, its social functions and significance in the history of mankind. The chronology and periodization of the history of Christianity, the causes and consequences of its occurrence are covered. Module 2 "World Religions of the East: Islam and Buddhism" is devoted to the study of Islam and Buddhism from the moment of their inception to the present day, to the analysis of religious doctrines, texts, rituals and the distinctive features of the various branches of these religions. Module 3 "History of the Russian Orthodox Church" is a direct continuation of the problematics of the history of world religions and at the same time it is directly connected with the courses of Russianl history and the history of Russian culture. It is aimed to solving the same educational problems as the history of world religions at the level of national history.
  • In Search of Russian Ethnic and Political Identity in Modern Era
    The course aims to form a general knowledge about the process of formation and evolution of various kinds of consciousness ; ethnical, cultural, religious, political ; in the history of Russia. The course is focused on Modern Era ; from Early Modernity (17th century) to contemporary epoch. This content is represented in two modules: “The Transformations of Russian Identity in the Age of Modernization" and “Russian ‘Age of Extremes: reconsiderations of reconsiderations". However the main part of concepts, images and notions, which were used in the framing of various kinds and versions of ideological doctrines in Modern Era, had appeared earlier. Therefore the first introductory module “Origination of Russian Ethno-political and Religious Consciousness" goes before the main content of the course. This module is dedicated to the first pages of Russian history, when the most long-liver notions, ideas and myths about Russian people and state germinated to become the work stock for various theories and conceptions later, in Modern Era.
