Half a century of Communism has changed the face of Central Europe. This includes the understanding of religion and our Christian heritage. Eastern Germany and the Czech Republic have become the two oft he most irreligious places on Earth. On the other hand, in countries like Poland the situation is different. Here, religiosity became a prime motivator for the peaceful resistance against totalitarianism. How did this difference come about? And which role does religion still play in Central Europe today?
