This volume is the result of the work of 15 researchers from four former communist countries (Poland, Hungary, Romania, Moldova) who approach the relationship between political power and the churches in Central and Eastern Europe during communism from an interdisciplinary perspective, exploring several directions: biographies (reconstructing the fate of the heroes of anti-communist resistance); institutions (analysing the mechanisms of repression); memorialisation (museum representations of communist repression); and cultural (cinematographic) representations of the communist past.

Dragoș Ursu – PhD in History, with a thesis on political detention in Romania; post-doctoral researcher at the University of Alba Iulia; interested by the history of communist regimes, political repression, memory of anti-communist resistance, state-church relations in the 20th century.
