Evangelistic Russian Christians have found ways to refresh simple American gospel songs:
I'm attaching a critical analysis that suggests a historical progression that began in the earliest days of Christianity with a denial of Western Christianity,led to Apophatic Theology, and then to the atheism that was institutionalized under the Soviets.
what interests me in the present chapter is not the eternal question traditionally broached, but the phenomenon of a new type of religious consciousness or, more precisely, a religious unconscious that is coming into existence in twentieth century Russian culture. The term 'religious unconscious' is applied here specifically to the state of Russian spirituality in the Soviet epoch and in particular to its latest phases when the official atheism is succeeded by various forms of post-atheist mentality.
We are turning demystification inside out: within the profane, we are discovering the sacred.
In our Western thought, are we following a similar pattern of discussion and analysis into a post atheistic age?
