Структура православной миссиологии в образовательной перспективе
The article is devoted to the problems of studying the structure of modern orthodox missiology in the system of theological knowledge. For much of its recent history, orthodox missiology has developed as an academic discipline of religious education. The teaching of missiology in theological seminaries was accompanied by a scientific search for its theoretical and methodological status in the system of orthodox theology, its structure, conceptual apparatus, and method. The article discusses the need for a systematic categorical analysis of the current state of missiology as a branch of Orthodox systematic theology. The solution to this problem involves identifying the development vectors of Orthodox missiology. Modern missiology is in the process of becoming an independent branch of Orthodox systematic theology. In this regard, modern Orthodox missiology is characterized by a lack of systematic planning of scientific work. Despite this, Orthodox missiology has significant potential for development in certain areas. The article analyzes the structure of modern Orthodox missiology. It is noted that the presence of a certain structure of missiology as an independent branch of Orthodox systematic theology indicates a certain level of self-organization achieved in the development process. In this respect, missiology has the fundamental experience of structuring, on the basis of which further development in the direction of additional systematization is possible. Recent scientific research has determined that missiology is a theological discipline. The task of updating the teaching of missiology in accordance with the newly obtained results is once again on the agenda.
