Type: Book chapter
It is examined whether the anti-church policy of the state socialist countries in Eastern Europe and in East Germany has had secularizing effects visible up to 2002. Data are taken from the European Social Survey's round 1. It is shown that the enforced secularization has had negative consequences on church membership, church attendance, frequency of prayer, importance of religion and religious self-categorization stronger than in the Eastern European countries.
