FAMILY AND RELIGIOUS VALUES

  • Makedonka Radulovic

Abstract

Religion is an integral part of the life of believers. In our society religion


is intertwined with tradition, family values and cultural heritage. The


research shows that most of the citizens in the Republic of Macedonia


define themselves as believers (91%), but if we go into a detailed


analysis, we will see that they are traditional believers without expert


knowledge in the field of religion, but do not fully adhere to religious


principles and practices. Understanding the religion among the


traditional believers comes down to respecting the tradition and religious


rituals and generosity rituals, nurtured with ages. After the Republic of


Macedonia declared its independence, a long period of revitalization of


religion began, that was characterized by a change in the religious


system, the secularization of religion, the rapprochement of the political


and religious elite, the attempts to introduce religious education.
