The introductory chapter to Part III, which focuses on religious change in Eastern Europe, discusses general trends of religiosity in the region. Changes to the religious landscape in the post-communist countries of Eastern and Central Europe have been marked in recent years by processes not only of revival, but also of decline. The introduction identifies three different trajectories in Eastern and Central Europe that will be dealt with: religious renaissance, religious decline, and slight decline against the background of widespread stability. This explains the choice of the three case studies to be analysed in the following chapters: Russia, East Germany, and Poland.
