Abstract
The article is devoted to the study of how religious identity and belonging to a religious community of a resident of a megalopolis become a life strategy for overcoming loneliness, contribute to the development of an independent life trajectory and the choice of stable value orientations. The text presents an analysis of the autobiographies of those who have chosen religious identity as their lifestyle strategy as a way of life and a way of self-determination. The methodological basis of the research is a combination of the theory of multiple modernities and the method of biographical interview.
