MODERNITY AND TRADITIONALISM IN THE ARCHITECTURE OF ORTHODOX CHURCHES

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №1 (57) March, 2017

In the article, we have analyzed the concept of modernity from different perspectives. We note some features of the philosophy of "modernity" calling into question its neutrality in relation to Christianity. We consider the vector of reference to the historical memory of Christianity justifying the traditional construction of Orthodox churches after "samples". We show differences in the relations to historical process in the concepts of "modernity". These differences are based on ideas of superiority of the present over the past, of the modern over the non-modern. Interactions between "modernity" and art and architecture are explored with the conclusion that the notions of modernity as a current historical moment are substituted with a notion of modernity as a politically engaged ear with its own specific ideology. The new concept is "modernity", understood as a politically biased era with its characteristic ideology. It is noted that Church operates its own comprehensive line of activity in architecture and art based on a conservative and sustainable design method.
