At the present day decline in theology regarded as «book learning» lies behind crisis of  confessional identity. Family and ethnic traditions, aesthetic preferences and other factors determine one’s membership of a confessional fellowship. As a result, a religious entity is no more a community of people having the same beliefs but is based on some other principles. One may count the High Church movement among these principles.

The author critically evaluates classical interpretation of the term High Church and considers it from the perspective of both liturgics and ecclesiology. Adiaphoron is the theological foundation for the High Church movement in Lutheranism. Russian High Church discourse does not form a common semiotic field – some regions are more prone to High Church tendencies than others. Obviously, Russian mental and cultural patterns are assimilated by the communities in the North-West region.

The study is based on the data received from the Church of Ingria. High Church movement proponents are featured by negative perception of liturgical and theological modernism. While the former can be detected easily, the latter may cause some difficulties because of vagueness of terms and using of common Christian notions out of their proper context. The author touches upon High Church movement adherents’ attitude to such «quasi-theological products» as female pastors and same-sex marriages.

Russian High Church Lutheranism can be characterized by the interest to the church fathers’ heritage, particular attitude to the sacraments, maintenance of the traditional holy orders, special attention to the Eucharistic canon, strict conservatism and traditionalism in liturgical hymnography. However, Lutheran High Church movement in the North-West region has not been formed yet.

The article focuses on the study of the category of time in the discourse of ritual. In spite of religious ritual being well-studied, its semiotic structure lacks analyzes. Contemporary study of ritual in terms of ethnography and anthropology should be supplemented with the concepts of theology and philosophy of religion. In order to examine essence of internal time of ritual scholars should use not only ethnographical methods, but ones of theology and semiotics. The author argues that internal time of ritual acts not only as a context in which ritual reveals its important elements, but has an independent value. In the text of ritual, as well as in other types of texts, internal time is transmitted through a variety of methods and generated at different textual levels — grammatical, lexical, philosophical and theological. Symbolic language of ritual is also manifested at different levels and can be expressed through a variety of discursive and over-discursive elements. Category of time in ritual can also be expressed symbolically. So, the author states that internal time of ritual is not a single continuum: both linguistic and ontological time construct internal time of the text, which is the product of their dialectical correlation. Ritual builds a unique time model, where sacred past and sacred future don’t correspond with any ordinary or grammatical time.

May 12, 2015 at the dissertation council of Church-wide post-graduate school hieromonk Methodius defended his doctoral dissertation, titled “Sacramental and anthropological aspects of substance in the writings of theologians of the  Alexandrian school, Great Cappadocians and Maximus the Confessor”. This review is based upon the opponent report during the defense of this dissertation. The author analyzes structure and content of the research. The concepts of the Church Fathers of the substance ontological status seem to be especially relevant today, as  they allow to interpret questions of modern natural science on philosophical and theological level. The reviewer gives a  high assessment of the thesis, though expressing some remarks about certain terms and their usage.
