THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN THE LIGHT OF VĚSTNÍK KATOLICKÉHO DUCHOVENSTVA
Languages of publication
In April 1949, the Communist regime officially terminated the last free Catholic press in Czechoslovakia, the official diocesan circulars. In its stead the uniformly printed Věstník katolického duchovenstva (Bulletin of the Catholic Clergy) was published by the State department for churches in Prague over 1949–54. This study, based on this publication, presents the image of the diocese’s religious life in South Bohemia, as imposed by Communist propaganda. Using selected examples, the study confronts the information provided by the Věstník katolického duchovenstva with the reality based on the testimony of South Bohemian archives.
