The article is devoted to religious law formation research from a historical and modern prospective. The authors consider the most prevalent religions in present-day society such as Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism and the way in which these religions influence legislation of India, Russia, Thailand, the United Kingdom and Muslim states. Furthermore, the author researches relationship between religion, law, and morality to reveal theoretical and practical links between religion and law. The explanation of the criteria for the legal provisions morality of is an obvious fact. In this regard, analysis of religious values and morality mutual influence is a necessary step of scientific research. This point provided a basis for studying the basic tenets of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism in terms of their ability to determine law. In conclusion, the authors note that the search for the rule we are looking for is not absolute, and many lawyers denied the very possibility of its existence. However, the authors come to the conclusion that complete denial of religious determinism of law restricts the range of possible tools for studying law formation.
