Abstract

The reports given are an attempt to debate on the commonly known thesis of a revolutionary character of religious breakthroughs. On the basis of the text from the former epochs the place of a human being in earthly and divine order was studied in three areas: earthly community, religious community, and supernatural reality in three parts:
1. The concept of society in the literature of former epoch – the changeability and lasting of the promoted pattern
2. The influence of Medieval and post-Medieval liturgy on the laymen religious life
3. Heaven open for Heretics and Pagans- post-Reformation eschatology versus medieval religious universalism
