For this reason, in the Princedom are no state institutions that regulate the relations in this sphere, and coverage and discussion of religious issues highlighted in the individual - is open to visitors and citizens - block and the separated into three themes: the Universal Christian Church, Islam, Rodnoverie.
The first theme - Universal Christian Church - is the youngest and most active: appeared in 2012 through an open, common and equal suffrage and was the result of unification of the Orthodox and Catholic Churches of the Princedom. The Church of the Princedom is out of the structure and hierarchy of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches. This is precisely the reason why the Church of the Princedom is called "Universal Christian Church."
In the Church of the Princedom are two rites: Latin and Byzantine (Eastern), the service can be performed in the temples on each of them in accordance with the liturgical rules. However, there is a trend towards unification - the establishment of the Latin rite. The liturgical calendar of the Church of the Princedom corresponds to what is accepted and approved by the Holy See for the Oriental Churches.
Due to the fact that members of the Church is a big part of the citizens of the Princedom, in their secular activity, this is quite an active part of the population seeks to implement the principles set out in the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church - a state in which the human person and of course always is the principle the subject and the goal of all social relations.

Islam Due to the fact that the religion is almost not represented within the limits of the Princedom in the profile "branch" of the forum of Aysellant in 2013 to make the hike, having reviewed the citizens and visitors to the principles of the Muslim faith, and is now open theological debate on the topic, the purpose of which can be defined as ecumenism - finding ways dogmatic and canonical conditions that may reconcile Christianity and Islam.

Rodnoverie In fact, this religion and profile forum topic of the Princedom is the concentration of pagan beliefs of ancient Slavs and the peoples who inhabited Eastern Europe. Topic is practically inactive because of the small number of adherents of the religion of the citizens and guests of the Princedom.
