The article contains the consideration of the socio-ethical guidelines of the worldview of the Reformation movement's founder Martin Luther and the Dutch philosopher-humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam. The author explores the value connotations of the ideas of these personalities and their correlation with contemporary realities of the religious life in post-Soviet societies. The Luther and Erasmus's views are correlated with the mechanisms for substantiating of the values of interconfessional dialogue, tolerance, cultural openness of believers and their readiness for solidarity in socially and morally meaningful activities with adherents of alternative beliefs. The study is realized at the disciplinary crossing of religious studies, ethics, the history of world philosophy and the history of religious doctrines.
