THE PRO-ORTHODOX СONSENSUS IN RUSSIA IN THE EARLY XXI CENTURY AS A PHENOMENON OF RELIGIOUS SITUATION
The article is an attempt to describe in system a unique phenomenon of the religious situation in post-Soviet Russia called a "pro-Orthodox consensus." This phenomenon exists both at the institutional level and at the level of social consciousness. Its main manifestations in the consciousness of society include three interrelated stable trends: the trust in the community to the church in the face of the Russian Orthodox Church; the prevalence of a positive image of Christianity and the church; the predominance of positive social expectations from religion and the church and their interaction with society. The preliminary analysis of the reasons for stability of the pro-Orthodox consensus in the Russian society of the early XXI century indicates a combination of increased demand for religion as a result of protracted social crisis («catastrophic postmodern»), a significant symbolic capital of Orthodox Christianity as the national (ethnic) heritage and the existence in the masses of a special kind of «confidence» in church institutions, based on the people’s internal distancing from them.
