This article deals with religious pluralism as a factor of identity development. Multiculturalism is the key term used in describing and debating the national, cultural and religious pluralism in post-modern societies. The paper draws attention to the significance of the religious factor within existing multicultural contexts, as well as highlights some of the implications of religious pluralism might have for identity. The author offers to look on the new vision of identity as a potential way of its development and to analyze the changing of identity's criteria and borders. The religious pluralism is analysed in the context of such tendencies as the multi-cultural and multi-religious communities as a result of mass migration.
