The article examines the concepts of secularization and secularism, relation between secular and religious in the modern world as well as the status and role of religion in a constitutional secular state and globalized multicultural society. The authors conclude that although nowadays religion seems to be able to claim only the role of a local regulator of social relations with a limited area of impact, in reality it does not give up efforts to expand its influence. Remaining one of the most important phenomena, it gradually strengthens its positions with the aim of delineating and, whenever possible, narrowing boundaries of a secular component of social life.
