Description The paper offers a look into the church environment in Czechoslovakia after February 1948. The first part deals with the way in which the Soviet Union was portrayed in the official press of the Czechoslovak Church after February 1948. The Soviet Union represented an ideal model for many European Communist regimes of the Eastern Bloc. Here, the paper presents the dominant themes associated with the Soviet Union in public space. The second part reflects upon the level of response to the presented discourse among priests and believers of the Czechoslovak Church in Brno. In this way, the paper connects research from the position of the center with the local history of everyday life. The topic is bounded by the years 1948–1960, i.e. a timeline that allows to take into account the possible changes in the image of the Soviet Union during the dynamic 1950s.
