The collision of “traditional” and “non-traditional” in the present day Russian religious landscape as well as in the present day world could not be interpreted as a kind of direct confrontation between Past and Present. This collision displays its global nature connected with subtle and complicated problems of revival of seemingly obsolete archaic ideas, habits and institutions in unique post-modern conditions of social life, economy, technology, mass culture and cross-cultural interplay. It seems to be valid either for interpretation of universal religious dynamics of modern and post-modern world (including Japan, India and Latin America), or for understanding and interpretation of the present day cultural, religious and legal realities in Russia including life and status of the Russian religious minorities. Many Russian domestic problems in the field of religious matters seem to be dependent not only on unique constellations of the present day universal and domestic history, but also on certain shortages of legal, philosophical and theological background of the Russian political class as well as (partly) of intelligentsia.
