Background. The issue of the interaction between religious institutions and the state is widely discussed in the scientific and social pedagogical environment nowadays. The problem has not been solved at the theoretical level either. Such issues as the nature of religious feeling, its relation to other basic human characteristics, religion, and secular school and many others still lack theoretical understanding. The paper suggests some outlines of the theory of solving the given problem.
Materials and methods. Comprehension of the problem is based on the substratum reflection, according to which the object of comprehension retains its manifold foundation and its internal concentration (A. A. Gagaev).
Results. The paper treats the religious feeling as the basic feature of the human
psyche that affects all his other abilities (the moral sense, intelligence, creativity, etc.). It proves the necessity of introducing a component that represents the religious feeling as the basic feature of the human psyche into the content of secondary education. It also gives the general description of such an educational component (secular and cultural basis of the course, the concept of the world as the irrational, as something addressing the person, etc.).
Conclusions. It is necessary to teach a course in the basic human ability “Religion and Man” on the secular and cultural basis in high school.
