Summary: This research project has to provide a scientific justification for the answer to the question: by looking through the prism of confessionality (Catholic, Orthodox and Muslim), to what extent is this on-going war religious, civil, and/or expansionist, and to what extent has it been caused by internal and/or external factors. Describing the war chronology, its extent and its social implications, sociology can provide an answer about the scope of confessional active or passive influences. That answer has an extraordinary meaning and significance not only for finding solutions for actual conflicts, but as well for the healing of the long-term effects caused bz war in these areas.

Keywords: religion, catholicism, orthodoxism, islam, moral, dialogue, war, human being, human nature, human right, politics, destruction, tradition, culture, conflict, power, II Vatikan Council

Research goals: Goal of this research is twofold: a) on one hand, to investigate intrinsic social and psychological determinants of confessions in the on-going war; b) on the other, to reach a cognitive result about the intrinsic implications of war, and to state the role of confessions in the healing of its consequences. The optimal expectation of this research area is the statement of hierarchy of determinants of war, the statement reached through considerations about the role and influence of confessional communities in the recent past, present and the future.
