Church and Religiousness of the Contemporary Czechs. Pedagogue’s Reflections Based on the Polish Sources

Church and religiousness in the Czech Republic are utterly fascinating matters. Czechs' historical experiences make them more distanced from the Churches, especially the Catholic Church, hence working out differential attitudes to those of neighbouring countries. Two doctrines of Protestantism and Catholicism are heavily impacting each other in the Czech Republic. This though affects the attitudes of the Czech Republic citizens. Contemporary Czechs defy the institutional forms of religiousness. They recognize it as private and individual matters and the whole society is highly laicized.
