This chapter presents an essay that examines the relation between the churches and national politics in Hungary during the period from 1970 to 1849. It suggests that the confessional rivalries within ethnic communities and a tendency toward secularization of public life had diminished the direct political influence of religion. Even among the Orthodox Romanians and Serbs, the church only managed to exert a very limited influence.

Keywords:   churches, national politics, Hungary, political influence, religion, ethnic communities, confessional rivalries
