Front Cover
Syracuse University Press, 2001 - History - 556 pages
This work traces the history of Soviet Catholicism from its rich life in 1914 through its tentative fate in the first sixty years of the USSR. It tells of the faithful men and women shackled by dictatorship, doomed to deportation, and abandoned by their own church in the west.
