This is a single-volume history of Christianity in Poland, a subject at the core of religious history and European secular history alike. The book covers the development of Polish Christianity from the tenth century to the year 2000, placing it in the broader context of East-Central European political, social, religious and cultural history. Jewish-Christian relations, and the problematic religious history of the Jews in the region, play an important part in the story, and there are pervasive references to countries historically linked to Poland, such as Lithuania, Belarus and the Ukraine. Jerzy Kloczowski shows how the history of Poland, and Polish Christianity, are embedded in the complex systems of relations with other countries and religious denominations. A History of Polish Christianity should be read by anyone interested in the confrontation between Christianity and the totalitarian systems of the twentieth century, and in the interplay between Eastern and Western Christianity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'Cambridge University Press are therefore to be congratulated for publishing this comprehensive yet accessible account by Poland's most distinguished living Church historian ... this is an excellent book by the master of his field.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
"This richly informed study provides a broad survey of Christianity in Poland from the 10th through 20th century...This is a wonderfully successful achievement whose value is much enhanced by a superb bibliographic essay on the scholarship in Western languages, principally English." -Choice
"this book was richly adorned with color photographs and drawings." -Slavic Review, Winter 2001
"...this book fills a void in the ecclesiastical history of Europe. No one can understand recent developments in one of Europe's largest countries (or allied states such as the Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania) without digesting this volume." -The Journal of Religion
"The author has provided a most valuable work for English-speaking historians of Christianity and all those interested in central and eastern Europe..." -The Historian
"The church's relationship to Polish modernity is particularly vexing. Jerzy Kloczowski's History of Polish Christianity is thus a valuable companion to any encounter with Polish history." -Padraic Kenney, University of Colorado, The Journal of Modern History
