AbstractGeneral consensus of the contemporary mass media is that the return of religion has emerged as the most important factor in global politics and culture today. The aim of this text is to challenge the problem of the actualization of religious visualization in the public life. The otherness of religious appearance, public demonstration of religious symbols and rituals became object of restrictive and prohibitive acts in a number of the European countries. This article addresses the contexts in which such imagery appears, the specific uses to which it is put, and differences between the representations of Western and Eastern religious traditions. The author examines this nowadays situation in the context of European and Lithuanian historical analogues, cultural adaptation, its borders, and dialogue and compromise possibilities between various cultural traditions. Also article is devoted to such problems as multiculturalism, secularisation and ambiguity of their interpretation.
