Zabaev Ivan. 2012. "Orthodox Ethic and the Spirit of Socialism. Towards a Substantiation of the Hypothesis [in Serbian]." Philosophy and Society, 23 (1): 1-20.
"The article traces possible channels of influence of a religious factor on the formation of a specific Russian version of socialism. Using the logics of the M. Weber’s work “The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism”, I. Zabaev reveals the categories that played a dominating role in the people’s consciousness in the pre-revolutionary Russia. According to his conclusion, these categories were “obedience” and “resignation”. It was obedience and resignation that assured the salvation (main value in Orthodoxy) of an Orthodox person. In everyday life such orientations were easily transformed into the readiness to obey the “superior”. Once elaborated, they turned to be quite stable and, being separated from their religious roots, ensured a sort of asceticism on the secular path.

Pavlyutkin Ivan. 2012. "Breaking boundaries between church and state: the case of Orthodox University." Ethnographic Review, 3, 47-64.
"Despite the standpoint that postulates the presence of a tight boundary between the state and the church in the area of education and that currently dominates in the public space, there are projects that are being initiated and realized today and that let us question its consistency. The aim of the article is to discuss these “impossible” projects exploiting the friction at the overlap. This article draws on participant observation fieldnotes, as well as 24 in-depth interviews with the staff, students, and graduates of a private Orthodox Christian University, conducted in 2011. In interpreting the research results, the author employs the principle of explaining the entrepreneurial exploitation of uncertainty, which was introduced by David Stark who expounded on the notion of heterarchy as an organizational form conducive to the productive untangling of complex situations."

"The goal of the text is to provide a “big picture” of homeless people support in Russia. Based on survey held in organizations working with homeless people in Russia in 2011 the author describes main actors, compares state and non-state organizations, develops types of homeless people support. State organizations basically provide locally based hard-to-access complex support. Two other types of support – the one aimed at homeless people return to family, and another - minimum support for vulnerable people, are provided mostly by non-state actors. The text touches the question of religion influence on homeless people support both in direct way (significant share of organizations helping the homeless are religious in Russia) and indirectly (through interaction with religious organizations)."
