Science and religion
Science and religion is an unparalleled work in both Russian and foreign literature.
The idea for writing an article on the relationship between science and religion came to Valentin Feliksovich Voino-Iasenetsky (the lay name of St. Luke) in the early 1920s, around the same time he decided to receive the priesthood. St. Luke participated in numerous public discussions and debates that included various attacks on religion. The Soviet power used such debates as an instrument for the destruction of Orthodoxy. Materialist scientists, party propagandists, former priests who had severed all ties with the Church were invited to attend. Naturally, discoveries in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, physiology, and other sciences were used as basic arguments against the existence of God in the defense of materialistic visions.
