The study provides insight into the attitudes of Czech Christians towards Marxism in the period of the so-called pre-totalitarian regime over the years 1945 to 1948. It introduces two of the most significant forms of ideological discussions between Czech Christians and Marxism and Communism of those times which are represented by the Catholic Josef Zvěřina and the Protestant Josef Lukl Hromádka. It demonstrates that both of these authors were open to the project of social equity, collective collaboration and more equitable distribution of capital. They were of the opinion that everything which was right in Communism was merely a development of that what was typical for Christianity and what could only find its proper place and crowning within integral Christianity. They rejected atheism. Zvěřina believed that ideological and practical atheism was such a key aspect of Marxism that it led towards such a different conception of human society which was impossible to coexist with Communism. Hromádka, in contrast, operated with the idea of non-atheistic Communism and from this derived the possibility that peaceful collaboration between communists and Christians could lead towards its surmounting.
