Abstract
The article focuses on the phenomenon of loyalty as the basis for the relationship between religious organizations and authorities in the Brezhnev era. The documents of the Council for Religious Affairs under the Council of Ministers of the USSR for the 1960s —1970s allow to analyze the conformity of the activities of the most mass religious associations led by the Russian Orthodox Church to three main criteria that allowed the state to come to a conclusion about the degree of loyalty of a particular faith: the legality, the behavior of the clergy, the transfer of financial resources in favor of quasi-public organizations. The article concludes that the Brezhnev era was a time of co-adaptation of power and the overwhelming majority of confessions in the USSR.
