Description The paper presents the pastor Jaroslav Vyskočil, an important figure of the Czechoslovak Church. The paper is focused on the 1950s, when Jaroslav Vyskočil served in the city of Brno. The paper is not a biography, but aims to demonstrate specific manifestations of communist church policy at the local level on the example of the pastor Vyskočil. At the same time, the paper offers an image of a believer who is actively trying to express his religion in the environment of a totalitarian communist state.
