The author analyses the preparation for the 1937 census in the USSR. For the first time in  the  Soviet  history  the  question  about  one’s  religious  allegiance  was  posed  to  respon dents, and a reference book on the religions in the USSR was prepared. In fact scholars created a ‘map’  of religions  that  helps  to  imagine  variety  of  religious  practices in the USSR in the mid-1930s.  The  appendix  to  the  article  presents  the  ‘Systematic  index  of  faiths  (religi ons)’.
