Church-State Relations in Poland: Formal Pluralism and Informal Church Establishment?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Poland is a country where Roman-Catholics account for over 90 percent of the population and religiousness remained high even during the self-avowed antireligious communist regime. Since the regime change of 1989, the Roman Catholic Church has assumed a prominent role in public affairs, which was not seriously threatened with the country's admission into the European Union in May 2004. This presentation discusses church-state relations in Poland and the impact 1989 and 2004 have had on the balance of power between the dominant church and the state. It argues that, although formally Poland adheres to religious pluralism, informally the Roman Catholic Church behaves and it is recognized as the de facto state, national church. The paper concludes with a discussion of the relationship between church-state relations and the quality of the Polish democracy.
