The History of Religiously-Integrated Medicine and Prospects for Its Future Development

Main Article Content

Pavel I. Sidorov


This article will systematize the remaining areas of tension between religion and science and discuss the possibilities for overcoming them by using the synergetic biopsychosocial spiritual methodology of psychiatric medicine as a paradigm of modern integrative medicine. The author’s methodology makes it possible to evaluate the human body’s resources as a biogenetic matrix of mentality: faith serves as a universal psychogenetic matrix of personality, stabilizing its structure and defi ning its lifestyle priorities; religion acts as an animogenetic matrix imbued with the image of a god possessing moral, philosophical, and ideological meaning; and the church serves as a sociogenetic component of social and state infrastructure.
