    ведь она основана на православии, пропитана им.

    Paragraph 3, line 2

    Для многих «православный» — это не только религиозный, но и истинно русский человек, представитель русской культуры: ведь она основана на православии, пропитана им.

    1. For many people, an orthodox believer is not just a religious person, but also a truly Russian person, a representative of Russian culture ...
    I am not sure if I understand it right.
    2. ведь она основана на православии, пропитана им.
    What does the sentence mean? What does она and им refer to?



    Спасибо заранее.

    "Она" refers to культура, and "им" - to православие. So a translation may read: "Because (you see), ((the) culture) is based/founded on Orthodoxy, and draped/soaked in it."

    because IT она (=the Russian culture) has roots in the Orthodox belief and is inspired by IT им (=the Orthodox belief)
