An account is given of the political history of the Yugoslav region from the 1930s to the 1960s, highlighting the role of the various religious and political organizations during the period. The different sections of the chapter cover the 1930s; civil war and the communist revolution (1941–50); exile politics and warring myths post‐1945 (the end of World War II); the years of renewal and peaceful coexistence after the Tito–Stalin split in 1948, and the interfaith dialog at that time; Church–State relations in the 1960s; and the erosion of religion and growth of Church buildings post‐1945 (and to beyond the 1960s).

Keywords:   Church, civil war, communism, exile politics, history, interfaith relations, political history, religion, religious organizations, Stalin, State, Tito, World War II, Yugoslavia
