Summary/Abstract: Immediately after the collapse of the totalitarian regime, relativism ensued – fertile ground both for a growing adherence to orthodoxy and for a huge variety of quasi-religious phenomena. Subsequently the lack of reforms became a factor for escape into the past. The role of orthodoxy has been exaggerated, for it has actually been based on the values of nationalism and slavicism. Orthodox ethics are incompatible with the values of civil society. Orthodoxy made a deal with the sphere of politics. It will become marginal due to the weakening relationship between politics and religion.
