Keywords: traditional religions | sacrifice | functions of religion | politics.

The ritual of sacrifice has many functions: it includes not a worldview function only but social, economic and political functions as well. It appeared in the culture that passed through the stage of hunting and gathering and is still present in veiled (hidden)form in modern mass culture, literature, arts, politics and everyday life.
