Pope Benedict XV’s activities which were meant to settle the relations between the Catholic Church and other states after the First World War were continued by his successor Pius XI. It was obvious for him due to attitudes radicalization in some European countries, where totalitarian systems were formed and which strived to subdue everything and everyone to the regime. The Pope saw this threat in the Soviet Union which was hostile to any religion. The Pope wanted to establish diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union neighboring states and in this way to stop the spread of communism in European countries where revolutionary atmosphere was present and stirred up. He wanted to protect the faithful of the Church from being pushed to the margins of social life. Good examples of this papal policy are concordats with Latvia, Poland, Romania and Lithuania. Those concordats generally survived till the beginning of the Second World War and till its end.
