Project Description

Summary:  View help for Summary The article considers the Church architecture in modern Russia. It shows the historical processes of development of Church architecture not only from the point of view of formal stylistic, but also substantial sense. For this purpose, a wide range of sources containing information about the sacred component of Church art and about the monuments of temple architecture were studied for the first time. At the same time, many fragments of the sources were first translated into English. The article uses historical and retrospective research methods, which allowed to study the theoretical heritage of the modern period in the history of Russia and at the same time to generalize the place of Russian Church architecture in the general context of European architectural development.

The methods of comparative-historical, historical-typological, structural-systemic and semiotic methods are applied in the work [5]. Comparative and historical-typological procedures in the analysis of facts on a long stretch of historical time made it possible to reveal patterns in the relationship between the state, government, society and the church as a spiritual institution, as well as those general trends that determine their specifics. It is important for us to move on to the characteristics of the religious picture of the world and the place in it of a person, the system of values and ritual practice with regard to the non-Orthodox church (culture) and new faiths [6]. The methods of the structural-system method allowed us to consider the structure of the church as a relatively stable set of relations of elements.
