The paper pays attention to an important aspect of religious practice - how people interpret their behaviour in relation to the expert ´s statements. I interpret the ethnographic data from perspective of the selected cognitive theories. In particular, I use the concept of traditional discourse and the theory of two modes of religiosity. The data were collected during ethnographic research in 3 villages situated in eastern Slovakia (2013), in central Slovakia (2015), and in western Slovakia (2017). I explore how non-experts address religious expert ś statements, attitudes, and behaviour when they explain their own attitudes and behaviour in religious sphere. I consider domains of life in which the expert ´s statements and behaviour are not relevant for layperson ś religious attitudes and actions and can even be interpreted negatively. I also address differences in explanations of religious expert ś and layperson ś attitudes. I argue that laypersons explain their attitudes and actions with reference to religious expert´s statements not only in domains of religion-related activities.
