Title variants
The relationship between the Polish United Workers’ Party elites and the Roman Catholic Church in the period of transition as exemplified by the Kraków Voivodeship
Languages of publication
The author of the article intends to discuss the important role of the Roman Catholic Church in the period of political transformation. He claims that a discourse on the shape of the denominational policy at the level of voivodeships is still nonexistent. The purpose of this text is a partial complement of a fundamental gap in research, as well as a detailed description of the relationship between the party elites and the Roman Catholic Church in the Kraków Voivodeship during the transition period. The author claims that the attitudes of the most important PUWP members towards the Roman Catholic Church were ambivalent and essentially based on commands sent from Warsaw. The impact of the Cracowian dignitaries on the shape of the relationship with the Roman Catholic Church resulted from executing tasks on behalf of the higher party structures.
