The article reveals the historical and legal features of the birth of a secular state, the role of human and other factors, especially religion, in the formation of the ideas of secular statehood. It primarily focuses on the anthropological and psychological features of the human personality, in which the qualities of immutability and dynamism have been incorporated since ancient times. The idea about the specifics of the origin of the ideas of secular statehood in the East and in the West is substantiated due to the difference between people of the Eastern and Western types.
