This contribution is focused on the research of the recent forms of the religious and spiritual identities in Slovakia after the revolution in 1989. The core of the study is devoted to the distinction of the rural (local) and urban (translocal) religious/spiritual identities. The authoress further pays attention to the process of so called 'local privatization' of the transcendental stories in the process of so called local approximation (1. topographic, 2. chronological or 3. personal). The authoress mentions also process of 'local deprivation' or local deproximation as manipulated process of the locally neglected stories/events/narratives. The next part of the study is devoted to the translocal and transtemporal character of the urban spiritual identities. Following the various forms of conversation and of the institutional/ private forms of religiosity/spirituality she designs a new typology. At the very end of the contribution she challenges the thesis of modernity of A.Giddens.
