The paper tries to shed light on an almost unknown attitude of the American pragmatist Richard Rorty towards the problem of religion. Biographical researches enable to the author to concentrate on Rorty's philosophy of religion and to offer an analysis of its stages of development. The author's conclusion is that even though the philosophy of Richard Rorty has passed a long way, through transcendentalism, analytic philosophy, anti-metaphysics, atheism, anticlericalism, romantic polytheism, to civil religion, he never stopped to yearn for unchangeable and strong fundaments of a liberal society (equality, solidarity, fraternity, love and reduction of cruelty) based on Christianity.
