Annotation:  The article is a sort of reflection on the research “The Great Russian Revolution: A Modernization of Modern?” about the revolution as a concept, as an instrument for the analyses of the different social issues. What is the result of the revolution? Is the progressive peaceful development after the revolution possible or is it only the real way to the totalitarianism? The author analyses the phenomenon of the Protestantism in its 500 anniversary. Is it correct to say, that the Reformation is a Revolution? Or it is a step on the evolution within Christianity, a sort of the option? Notably, the spirit of the revolution’s freedom evolved to the reformation of the revolution in the form of the cooperation model in State-Church-relations and ecumenism in the modern Germany.

Keywords:  revolution, totalitarianism, Reformation, Protestantism, Christianity, freedom of conscience, cooperation model of State-Church-Relations, ecumenism.
