Historical Roots of Hungarian Christian Democracy V

The latest study by our Researcher, Ádám Darabos

Formerly, we investigated the early historical roots of Hungarian Christian democracy and the appearance of the first Hungarian Christian party, the Catholic People’s Party. We also elaborated on the turbulences of the “happy times of peace” and the collapse and the status of Christian democracy (and Christian nationalism) in the Horthy regime. The fifth article in the series provides an overview of the (Christian) Democratic People’s Party from 1945 to 1949. This short period is highly significant since – within limits posed by the communists – the Hungarian Christian democratic movement led by the (Christian) Democratic People’s Party became a vivid political force in Hungary.
