The article refers to the necessity of rationalization of the spheres of modern education and culture to prevent a growing range of social violence in a global world. The author notes out the importance of religion in resisting the different forms of violence and irrationality in the contemporary societies. Author underlines the significant role of enlightenment and reason, of rationalization of social and cultural interactions for comprehending a dialogue in the contemporary multicultural world. The article considers the most relevant phenomena of contemporaneity – violence and religion – in their interaction and confrontation. Violence is presented in a number of forms: power as command and subordinate relations; irrationality and destruction of impersonated mass; mimetic violence based on simulation and marking the victims.

The author focuses on moral, anthropological and spiritual potential of religions to preventing violence and minimizing its effects.
