Abstract

The relevance of this study is explained by the necessity of reviewing the historical framework of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church as an important component of the socio-cultural life of Ukraine, as well as by considering further prospects of its development on the way to full canonical reunification of all existing Orthodox churches of Ukraine, namely the Orthodox Church of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate. The purpose of this study is to study the prospects of further development of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the context of homogenization of its cultural and spiritual space. This article presents the main historical moments of the development and strengthening of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the socio-cultural space. The importance of the existence of the autocephalous cathedral of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church as a guarantee of the preservation of the state and awakening of the national consciousness of Ukrainians, as well as the elimination of Russian political narratives, which are broadcast through the UOC-MP, is outlined.
