The following (not quite recent) might be of some interest:
Pl\"ahn, J\"urgen: Der Gebrauch des modernen russischen Kirchenslavisch in der russischen Kirche. Hamburg 1978: Buske. ISBN 3-87118-338-5

Not precisely sociolinguistic in its orientation, but contains discussion on communication models relevant to Church Slavonic as a religious language.

Re the question regarding sociolinguistic studies of religious language: I don't know exactly what the student has in mind, but Mimi Klaiman, a linguist with a strong background in South Asian lgs. also happens to be extremely knowledgeable about Indian religion and might know something. She's visiting in my department this year -- e-mail address is klaimanumnacux (bitnet) or klaimanux.acs.umn.edu (Internet). She's leaving for India soon so act fast!
