The Relation Between Religiosity and Trust in Public Institutions
Trust in public institutions plays a significant role in society. Thus, the degree to which citizens believe in the clarity and fairness of these institutions depends on the cohesion of society and the participation of citizens in the life of the state.Such trust is built on a huge number of factors, one of which is the values put forward by religious teaching. Thus, within the framework of Orthodoxy, the closest to God is the one who has a greater social status, which also applies to the worldly life - that is, we can say that the worldly head for an Orthodox person is the exposer of God's will. Thus, in this paper we put forward a hypothesis that religious Orthodox people tend to trust the state institutions to a greater extent. This hypothesis will be tested using quantitative methods.
