Abstract

Background. The study of the liberal ideology’s history of Russia in the second half of the XIX – early XX centuries is impossible without taking into account the confessional component, which remains relevant in the modern multi-confessional Russian Federation. The aim of the study is to analyze the approaches to the interpretation of the religion’s place by liberals in pre-revolutionary Russia.
Materials and methods. The study was conducted on the basis of a wide range of sources, including archival data, official press, policy documents of political parties. Formal-logical, comparative-historical methods are used. Proceeding from the possibilities of the social approach, the author investigates the formulation of the confessional question in Russian society of the second half of the XIX – early XX centuries.
Results. During writing the article the main task is solved to generalize approaches to the solution of the confessional question by representatives of public thought of pre-revolutionary Russia.
Conclusions. The importance of understanding approaches to confessional policy in the Imperial period of Russian history is largely due to the complexity of assimilation of the annexed territories, which took place in the direction of russification and conversion to Orthodoxy of the national outskirts. The results of state policy towards different confessions at different stages of Russian history have led many Russian liberal authors to rethink the Church question in their works and party policy documents. Representatives of Russian liberal thought in their projects and programs have always allocated space to the analysis of the triad “Orthodoxyautocracy-nationality” in the context of understanding the future of Russian statehood.
