n International Journal for Religious Freedom - Believing in Russia - Religious Policy after Communism, Geraldine Fagan : book review

Volume 5, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 2070-5484



In the area of research on the relationship between the state and churches in the post-Soviet space there is a deficit of books describing the more than twenty years old history of religious freedom as a whole. In fact, no such scholarly monographs have been ever published in Russia. The contribution of Geraldine Fagan is that she made an attempt to collect a practically immense material and present it as one history of how people believe in Russia. But it turned out a difficult task due to the paradoxes shaping the attitudes to faith in the post-communist space and the danger of presenting faith and religious situation in the country only on the basis of the human rights information.
