Summary/Abstract: The term “Christian culture” is traditionally used to refer to religious doctrine and its various historical, artistic, personal, and other implementations. From the perspective of, say, sociology, Christian culture is one of the aspects of culture of human society. But the problem is that the Christian Church (and more narrowly – Orthodoxy) in the theories of their representatives is positioning itself like another in relation to the world, distinguishing between the concept of “Church” and “world”. In this regard, it seems appropriate to provide specific belonging to the “church culture” in a huge reservoir of phenomena attributed to the “Christian culture”. The concepts of “Christian culture” and “church culture” are often perceived as synonymous. However, the Church is not limited to community living, but has a complicated structure.
