Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article’s main objective is to present the relationship between the Antanas Smetona regime and the Catholic opposition in 1929–32, and an evaluation of the repressive measures applied during this period. An analysis of various sources revealed that the actions of the right-wing nationalist government toward the Catholic opposition – which included the clergy, Catholic social organisations, and the Christian Democrats – were extremely harsh, signifi cantly since the Catholic movement did not threaten the state sovereignty, public order, or political doctrine carried out by the Lithuanian president. The 1929–32 timeframe refers to the period of the greatest tension in the confl ict between the Lithuanian government and the Catholic Church. The confl ict between the Republic of Lithuania and the Vatican divided society, thus disrupting the existing positive diplomatic relations, which were refl ected in the signing of the concordat in 1927.
