This article examines the key stages of the evolution of spiritual and moral education based on Orthodox Christian values, starting from the early days of Christianity and ending with the present period, when the Church becomes one of the most important institutions influencing the formation of spiritual and moral qualities of young people. The purpose of the research is to study the fundamental foundations of spiritual and moral Christian teaching, their reflection in the historiosophy of the Orthodox religion. and their significance in the formation of a person’s worldview of the present time. The conclusions drawn in the course of the study allow us to reliably assert that the spiritual and moral values of Orthodoxy are natural and organic to the Russian mental character in any period of its development. That is why, in the XXI century, a return to traditional values by redirecting education and upbringing as mutually dependent sides of a single process into a spiritual and moral traditional path will allow the Russian people to find their own path in world history.
