Inhaltsangabe: Edited by Tom Inglis, Zdzislaw Mach, and Rafal Mazanek. How politics and democracy are affecting religion today. Are churches a force for democracy, and religious belief a bulwark of civil society? Or are churches traditional authoritarian institutions inimical to mature democratic societies? Such questions about religion and politics have come back to the center of controversy both in the countries of the former Soviet Empire and in the West. This collection of nine essays by a wide range of academics from various European universities is a product of collaboration between Dutch, British, Polish, and Irish writers. Some of the topics they examine include: change in European religions; the Catholic Church and democracy in modern Europe; religion and media domination in Ireland; Protestants in an Irish Catholic state; the fall and rise of the Greek Catholic religion in Poland; Catholics in Poland; the Church of England in the Thatcher period; and the state of religion in modern Britain. Tom Inglis teaches at University College Dublin, and both Zdzislaw Mach and Rafal Mazanek at the University of Krakow.
