The Roman Catholic Church in Poland and Civil Society:Contradiction or Complementarity?

Janusz Mariański
Issued Date: 17 Aug 2008


In this article, I address the stance taken by the Church viz-à-viz the social and political structures of Polish society. This arises because the new situation of a democratic state presupposes a secular, civil society environment. In my analysis, I show that the Church has moved away from political engagement with this new situation, and is now shaping itself as a key element, but only one of several, in a pluralistic culture. This will mean a quite different Church in the future.
