Languages of publication
This study deals with one of the methods used by the communist state authority to take control and paralyse the activities of the Catholic Church in Czechoslovakia during the period of communism. An important aspect of this activity was the isolation and neutralization of bishops and the gain of substantial influence on the course of Episcopal consistories in the dioceses. The administrators of the state's church policy were the assignees that were appointed to the consistories at the end of 1940s by the Ministry of the Education, Science and Arts. The reasons and the legal basis of the assignees' appointment, the scope of their activities and duties, as well as the allocation of the consistorial agenda are described. Other Acts of the Ministry restricting the activities of the consistories are presented in the last part of the study.
