Languages of publication
This paper looks at the promotion of the Catholic faith during a period of increasing secularisation of Czech society in the first half of the 20th century, exemplified in the organisational, pastoral and literary works of Smíchov priest, Msgr Jan Pauly, who was mainly known as a leading figure in the pre-War Zemská Jednota katolického duchovenstva (the Catholic Clergy Union) Following the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic, he stood for Ultramontanist positions and strongly defended the Catholic Church’s privileged position. The submitted paper looks in particular at the communication and promotional strategy he chose towards his parishioners and lay believers and the wider lay public, which in the working class environment of industrial Smíchov was significantly influenced by secularist thoughts.
