Chapter Summary

In present-day China, study of the Leninist view of religion is very weak. Worse still is the persistence of a "unilateral" denial of Leninist perspectives. In response to this situation, this chapter attempts to delineate thoroughly the emergence, development, and rich content of the Leninist view of religion. Furthermore, it realistically analyzes the characteristics and historical status of Leninist perspectives in a historical materialist way. The chapter discusses that the Marxist-Leninist view of religion in a very extensive sense is a complete, continuous, persistently growing and inseparable course consisting of ideas developed by Marx, Engels, Lenin, and the Chinese Communist Party. Inasmuch as post-Soviet Union thought, which totally negates the later Marx and Engels and Lenin, has exerted an influence on China, a comprehensive discussion and scientific appraisal of the Leninist view of religion is very necessary for China's work of further academically exploring Marxist perspectives on religion.
