Explicitly the term "religious education" enters the Russian language only in the second half of the 20th century, whereas implicitly such education, being understood as the transfer of knowledge and practical skills of the relationship with the "unknown" from generation to generation, existed throughout the history of mankind. The ancient "oral tradition" of the Slavs was radically transformed by the introduction of the "Greek Law", as a "science of the fear of God" (the 10th century), which existed until the beginning of the 20th century. The second radically new form was the "era of the USSR," when "religious education" was banned as "hostile to science." The third form, beginning from 1989, was the development in modern Russia of a "religious", “religious science” and "culturological" educations that have their own peculiarities of relations with the sciences. This article addresses the matters of the general history of the formation of "religious education" in Russia.
