Oleh Kindiy | Persecution during Soviet Times & Current Revival of Catholic Church(es) in Ukraine

March 18, 2019
Dr. Oleh Kindiy, Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv recently visited CTR/CES and gave a presentation with the full title: "Experience of Martyrdom and Persecution during Soviet Times and the Current Revival of Catholic Church(es) in Ukraine."

From the abstract to the presentation "The lecture is based on memoirs and eyewitness interviews, documents from state archives, and photographs from private collections depicting the life stories of Greek Catholics in the USSR from 1946 to 1989 when the UGCC was considered officially abolished and forbidden. How does this memory shape the nature and mission of the Catholic Church in Ukraine today?"

This is the second lecture (of seven) in the series "The Many Guises of European Catholicism", that the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies is with support from the Centre for European Studies at Lund University.
