Theological education as a way to reproduce "religious capital" (philosophical and legal aspects)
The present paper is aimed to study theological education as a way to reproduce "religious capital" in a legal secular state (on the example of the Russian Federation legislation). The function of religious capital is to translate religious knowledge and values from generation to generation. The main method of the study is the comparative-legal method that allows one to study education varieties, the nature and features of theological education as a way to reproduce "religious capital". The authors use the method of systemic analysis, deduction, induction, the historical method, and others. The authors conclude that some legislative innovations in Russia necessitate a reconsideration of approaches to the relationship between legal and theological education. Religious capital can be seen as a type of cultural capital. The authors believe that "spiritual-religious capital" includes not only innovative knowledge but also common knowledge presented in textbooks, teaching aids, and dictionaries – this type of knowledge can also be viewed as a type of intellectual (cultural) capital that belongs to an individual or a social group.
