Abstract

Este artigo descreve o contributo da Igreja polaca para o processo democrático na Polónia. Argumenta-se que a Igreja teve um papel crucial na formulação das redes de oposição que levaram à formação do Sindicato Solidariedade e que o seu capital social e político foi essencial para levar a bom termo a transição pactuada que resultou no desmoronar do comunismo na Europa Central e Oriental e na reunificação da Europa. O artigo analisa a atuação da Igreja nas diferentes fases deste processo, desde a instauração do comunismo às eleições semilivres de 1989.

This article describes the contribution of the Polish Catholic church for the democratic process in Poland. The article proposes that the church had a crucial role in the formulation of the opposition networks that led to the formation of the Solidarity Trade Union in 1980 and that its social and political capital was essential to lead the pacted transition resulting in the crumbling of communism in Central and Eastern Europe in 1989 and in European reunification. This article analyzes the work of the church during the different phases of this process, from the imposition of communist to the semi-free elections of 1989.
