Egorov S. - Theoretical bases and practice of organization of educational process in systems of Evangelical theological education pp. 8-19


Abstract: The subject of the study is settings of the philosophy of education, on which the educational process in various systems of Evangelical theological education is based. The main attention is paid to the way how the ideas about educational activities recorded in normative and declarative documents affect the direct practice in this field. In spite of the availability of various documents, describing the components of the philosophy of education, there is no cohesive doctrine of educational activity in the Evangelical community yet. Moreover, programs at different levels are often implemented according to different settings. Meanwhile, there exists a wide range of common settings, which allows talking about the integrity of theological education. As the main approach for this study, the methodology of soft systems was chosen, the development of which began at Lancaster University by Peter Checkland and his colleagues. This methodology allows renovating the concepts of education, existing in official documents and the direct practice, and also carrying out their comparative analysis. The novelty of the study is due to the fact that various aspects of the philosophy of theological education used in the Russian systems of Evangelical education were subjected to extensive system analysis for the first time. The author shows how certain attitudes from the philosophy of education are manifested in various components of programs of different levels and directions on the basis of a significant array of data. The obtained scientific results allow, on the one hand, formulating recommendations for the development of this professional sphere, and on the other hand, promoting the development of effective state policy in relation to theological education.

Egorov S. - Evangelical theological education in the context of Russian legislation and confessional norms pp. 78-88


Abstract: The subject of this research is the representations on the scope and content of the systems of Evangelical theological education recorded in the current Russian legislation, as well as the establishment of religious organizations of Evangelical denomination. In Russia, the theological education is simultaneously regulated by the two Federal Laws – “On Education” and “On the Freedom of Conscience and Religious Associations”. Dual subordination stipulates the emergence of the conflict of laws, as well as defines the specific vector of development of the sphere itself and the state-confessional relations. The expansion of participation of the religious organizations representatives in the area of higher education, as well as the consolidation of the specialty “Theology” in the national educational standards, determines the relevance of the active examination of this problematic. The scientific novelty lies in the fact that for the first time the Russian legislative norms regarding the regulation of theological education, including preparation of minister and religious personnel, undergo systemic analysis, considering the position, interests and practice of the representatives of educational organizations institutionalized by the Evangelical churches. The author demonstrates such aspects of law enforcement practice that reflect the positive aspects of state norms, as well as those, in which the Evangelical believers prefer using the precepts of religious organizations, and avoid the secular norms and rules when possible.

Egorov S. - The Missionary Work of Soviet Protestants (Based on the Materials from the Council for the Affairs of Religious Cults) pp. 155-164


Abstract: The research subject of this article is the conceptual categories that highlight the missionary work of the Protestants who lived in the Soviet Union between 1944 and 1965. At the heart of the source base for this study lie the documents stored in the collections of the Council for the Affairs of Religious Cults under the Council of Ministers of the USSR, primarily from the collection of the commissioner for Moscow and the Moscow Region. Particular attention is paid to the linguistic features of these documents, many of which combine terminology from different cultural areas. The research was carried out within the framework of the methodological approach to the history of concepts, which involves examining both the terminology used and the context of their application. Relevant terms are analyzed not only as components of the professional language but also as tools for carrying out political activities. The novelty of this study lies in the fact that for the first time in scientific research the history of the missionary work of Protestants during the Soviet period is examined within the framework of the methodology of the history of concepts. The author shows how the use of such categories as "agitation", "recruitment", "evangelism", "teaching", "missionary work" and "mission" influenced the perception of the work under examination by the target audience of the research documents.

Egorov S. - The systems of Evangelical theological education in the context of international norms and principles pp. 47-61


Abstract: The subject of this research is the representations of the limits and content of the systems of Evangelical theological education reflected in acts of the various intergovernmental and nongovernmental international organizations. These systems feature the religious educational organizations, faculties of secular universities, as well as structural departments of religious institutions that prepare the ministers and religious personnel. The need for referring to international acts is substantiated by ambiguity of formulations of the specialized Russian legislation and dispositions of the Russian centralized religious organizations, which complicates the advancements of this sphere in the context of harmonization of the state-confessional relations. In the course of this work, the author applies the methodology of soft systems developed by Peter Checkland and his supporters, which allows reconstructing the normative requirements of the various international acts, compare the acquired results with the relevant practice in corresponding sphere, as well as highlight the most prioritized vectors of its development. The scientific novelty lies in the fact that for the first time the normative acts of the international intergovernmental organizations that regulate higher education at the global level, have been examined in comparison with dispositions of the international nongovernmental organizations, created by the representatives of Evangelical churches for the purpose of advancement of the professional theological education. The author demonstrates how the theological education can be implemented into the global educational system. Similar world experience can be valuable for the development of Russian legislation, particularly with regards to international cooperation in the field of education.

Egorov S. - The rejection of historical myth as the basis of identity (on the example of Soviet Protestants) pp. 30-39


Abstract: The subject of this research is the policy of formation of the identity of Russian Protestants during the Soviet period and modern Russia. Main attention is focused on such cultural phenomenon as historical myths, and their impact upon the establishment of personal identity by the representatives of Protestantism. Multiple myths about Protestants have emerged prior to formation of USSR, but during the Soviet time acquired particular meaning, complemented by the new Soviet myths. Methodological foundation contains documents collected and written by the employees of the Council on Religious Cult Affairs under the Council of Ministers of USSR. The scientific novelty consists in the fact that the Soviet historical myths about Protestants were considered as an independent vector of study, rather than in status of illustrations to the other storylines. The conduction analysis demonstrates that the refection of negative myths was and remains to be one of the key components of the identity policy of the Russian Protestants.
