Unlike a lot of players, Russian and otherwise, I've never seen Elena wearing anything like a cross or whatever that would advertise her religious beliefs. Given the fact she's Russian, Orthodox or nonreligious would be good guesses.

Her grandparents on one side live in Riga, and so there might be some ethnic Latvian ties in her family somewhere, in which case she might be Lutheran or Catholic.

My guess is given her private nature we're not likely to hear a whole lot about Elena's religious beliefs, though, so we can just go on speculating forever.

IMO the question should not be about Elena's religion but if we are prepared to make Elena our religion; our Golden Goddess. I am. Anyone else?.

Well, Elena doesn't wear her religion on her sleeve so the only thing we can do is speculate. Some kind of Christian is probably right, but religious views were squashed and forgotten in Russia and many generations grew up with no religious identity at all.

I didn't grow up knowing much or anything about Russian Orthodoxy or Protestantism, even though I didn't grow up behind the Iron Curtain. you just have your New Years tree that becomes a Christmas Tree in the states.

It's weird :rolleyes:
Sorry but vast majority of those who posted just have no idea on the subject...

The topic is rather intimate I'd say - do you stll think we are all robots obeying the authorities? or fashion for that matter - so I for one don't think it's for discussion. Anyhow the Russian Orthodox would be the answer nearest to truth...

Btw, I can understand norge's way of thought but it's not true, sorry.
Don't judge by press releases and bad history-textbooks...

Is is a pity you have so little knowlegde about russian culture and society - some of the posts show ignorance.
Elena is in the Ortodox Russian Church, and not showing any crosses or similar things doesn't prove non-believing...

WTF were you waiting for??????????????? we don't live in Russia how the hell you want us to know if we do not live in there, we don't have to know why????????????????????????????????? I mean Russia is not even in my continent(But I love Russia a lot really) so why should we know :rolleyes:.

Like PituBellyButton said about Lena being born in the comunism and as far as I know or what I've been teach is that they were/are atheists.

So you are assuring that Lena is in the Ortodox Russian Church, she told you that or what????????????????????? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I also know the religion of President Bush, and he neither told me nor I live on his continent. When I do not know something I try to read... that the secrect.
No hard feelings !
But for me it is still so difficult to understand how people use sterotypes than facts...

It is also strange what you say about communism and atheism. It is worth stressing that the church played a key role in collapsing the communism. And in some countries, treated as former communist, the atheism level is... ca. 1%

Small historical review :lol:

Russia has always been very religious country (Christianity - Orthodoxy :worship: :D ). The "communists time" lasted only for 70 years (and Russia exists for more than 1000 years :D ) and couldn't destroy the whole culture. And even during the soviet times many people still believed, although had to hide it.
Soviet goverment tried to grade the Russian church cause communism was kind of religion itself...

As about Elena... Hard to say. Probably her family was not very religious and so she is - the fact that she is not wearing cross... But I don't know exactly. It's an interesting question :confused: , try to find out.

thanks for these facts :) .
So I was wrong then............. sorry.

So when you are an orthodox you have to wear a cross???? :confused: Nastya has one rigth??????? I saw a pic in a magazine where she is wearing a cross....... Maria also has one.

I'm a catholic and I wear a thing too,(I don't know the name in english how to say it 'cos is not a cross) its a Vrigin the "Virgen de Guadalupe" (the mother of all the mexicans :worship: )catholics believe in Virgins and Saints.
And the story of the aparition of this Virgin is so cute.

You don't HAVE to, but usually they wear. It's a cross with Jesus crucifed on it, sometimes just a cross.
And what about Virgin? It's something like a small figure of her or what?) All catholics wear this thing or not? Just curious cause I thought I saw in films that not only orthodox wear crosses...
So I was wrong then............. sorry.
It's ok :) , it's quite understandable that we usually learn some stereotypical and sometimes wrong opinions about foreign nations from schoolbooks, teachers and from Mass Media also...

I think whoever it was that said Elena is a Goddess herself had it right. :)

yeah its a small figure of her................. in the back it says "que no estoy yo aqui que soy tu Madre" wich means something like " am I not here that I'm your mother" and its in gold my mother gave it to me as a gift when I did my "primera comunion" almost 12 years ago .

catholics wear cross or figures of the Virgins(there are a lot if Virgins it depends on the country) my father and grandfather](and I don't remember if my brother too) wear a cross with Jesus crucifed on it ;) .
Talking about my country the religion is such and important deal and specially the virgin our Virgin :worship: :) .

I will tell how we venerate our Virgin and the story of the Virgin(if you want to of course) 'cos rigth now I have to go :bolt:

:wavey: :wavey:

Tks for the link! Finally I know the legend of the famous Virgin of Guadalupe! I had watched countless episodes of Marimar praying to "la virgencita de Guadalupe" without actually knowing the story behind her faith. (Something new every day!).

To disseminate knowledge across cultures, here in Costa Rica, we have la Virgen de los Ángeles, whose feast is celebrated every August 2nd (national holyday) in what is called "la Romería", which is basically a pilgrimage where people goes to her Basilica to venerate her and, in many cases, as a fullfillment of promises made to her during the year.

Slds,

The same thing with my Virgin her day its december 12 :) and people goes and venerate her for example the inmigrant living in the United States make the "maraton guadalupano" and also people from other states go to México city some from very very far.........some people came walking¡¡¡¡¡¡ :eek: just to honore her :worship: :worship: :worship: .
We also celebrate her with parades (en mi cuidad muchos locales, tiendas comerciales empresas etc sacan sus imagenes de la Vírgen y se unen en un gran desfile que termina en la iglesia principal y el sacerdote les bendice las Vírgenes a todos).

We (all the mexican) really have that Virgin inside of us.......I dear to say that we kind of honor her and pray to her more than we do to God himself (I don't know of that is good or bad.......and I don't care).

I'm a proud Guadalupana :bounce: :) :) .
