The article presents the issues of strong relations between various conceptions of God and their consequences – adopting a concrete vision of political life, nation, and state. The author shows relations between religion and politics in the context of political eschatology and political messianism, pointing to the examples of the French Revolution, nineteenth-century Polish messianism, revolutionary Russia, or Nazi Germany. Quoting various examples, the author poses the thesis that the vision of God and the place of religion in a given society strongly influence the political sphere, the perception of the state's role and the definition of a nation.
