This article presents the results of a sociological study conducted in the years 2010-2011, which attempted to study some contemporary problems relating to the parish community of the Russian Orthodox Church. Parishioners of three Moscow parishes were questioned - the parishes of the Holy Venerable Tsarevich Dimitry, of Saint Mitrophan of Voronezh and that of Saint Nicholas in Kuznetsy. Data gathered from the survey provided the authors with some suggestions regarding how to form a strong and active Orthodox parish community.

The terms «empirical theology» and «practical theology» are not widely employed in our country, and in most ecclesiastical and theological (and humanistic) schools, such subjects are not taught (most probably because their place is usurped by the teaching of pastoral theology). The aim of the author is to describe the principles of empirical theology based on the works of one of its foremost proponents — Jan van der Veen, who for several years was the dean of theological studies at the Catholic University of Nymegen (Netherlands).

This article examines the understanding of the social network and lays the foundation for the possibility of applying the social network approach to the sociology of religion. During the last twenty years, Russian sociological circles have been actively discussing the question of whether Orthodoxy exerts any influence on contemporary Russia. Until the present, the amount of influence has been calculated by examining how people identify themselves and by how frequently they practice their religion. With the help of an apparatus of network analysis, an attempt is made in this article to detect still another way religion influences Russian today. The authors suggest a threepart typology of the way a contemporary person relates to religion: conversion, linkage through a social network, linkage through publicly visible marks of religiosity. With the aid of the foregoing, one can hazard the hypothesis that the second factor is of prime importance especially in countries threatened by forced secularization. The authors question the social mechanics gearing the functioning of contemporary Russian society and attempt to calculate the potential outreach of the contemporary Russian Orthodox parish. Data collected by the authors allow one to suppose that the influence of linking oneself to religion through and amid the various facets of life of the average Russian may be just as effective as the conversion experience

In a number of areas of religious studies, such as sociology of religion, economy of religion, etc., the question of the nature of the infl uence of religion on certain aspects of life, namely politics, economics, family relations, has been developed for a long time. However, the analysis of the real or potential infl uence of Orthodoxy on people’s behaviour in diff erent spheres of life is only beginning. One of the virtues that is typical of Orthodoxy is “humility”. In order to carry out empirical studies that would allow us to assess how humility aff ects personal attitudes toward diff erent spheres of life and the person’s behaviour, it is necessary to create an instrument that would make it possible (at least in the form of a rough approximation) to evaluate the person’s possession of this ethos. This article carries out preliminary research for the construction of the scale of “humility” and gives a review of existing attempts in empirical studies to measure this virtue. This review covers such approaches as “virtues in action”, “HEXACO. Six major dimensions of personality”, “Relational humility”, “Self-focus” and “Otherfocus combination”, “Humility in positive psychology», «dispositional humility» and some others. Certain scales, such as “Relational humility scale”, “State humility scale”, “Disposition Humility scale”, “Humility as a combination of low attention to Self and high attention to the Other” (low self-focus, high other-focus), are being analysed as well. The article also discusses main diffi culties encountered by the developers of these scales.

The article considers humility as one of the key categories in the practical ethos of Russian Orthodoxy. Sociological and theological problems related to this category are discussed and formulated. The main emphasis is on the analysis of the relationship in the pair "the one who humbles - the one who gives humility". The formulation of the problem of humility in this form is not obligatory, but it is precisely this problem that has received a certain spread in Orthodox discourse today. The reduction of the fullness of the problem to such a configuration of relations leaves many important subjects out of consideration, but at the same time allows us to concentrate on one problematic point noted in modern Orthodox discourse.To discuss the logic of the ethics of humility was chosen the following text - "Asceticism according to Orthodox Christian teaching" by S. Zarin. On its basis, the dominant interpretation is described – "humility as acceptance of humiliation." Relying on texts discussing humility both inside and outside the Church, the author shows that one of the central virtues of Russian Orthodoxy is embodied in such a practice, which has a number of "ambiguous" consequences.At the same time, the author points out the deep rootedness of the category of humility in Orthodox ethics and suggests turning to the texts of the New Testament in search of a nuance in the understanding of humility and suggestions for the embodiment of this virtue in practice, capable of minimizing these ambiguous consequences. This nuance – mutuality – the author finds in the Epistles of the st. Paul. By analyzing the meaning of humility and the use of this concept in the text of the epistles of the apostle, the importance of recmutuality of actors entering into interaction is shown.In conclusion, the presence of such an interpretation in the Russian Orthodox tradition, namely in the texts of Theophanes the Recluse, is discussed. Thus, the assumption is substantiated that such an interpretation is not alien to the Orthodox worldview. The author suggests that the emphasis on mutuality in understanding and practicing humility could help to remove a number of negative effects that are fixed today (and were fixed earlier) both inside and outside the Church.
