Hence, I am going to analyze the situation in a country which is especially exemplary for the effects of the communist regime, namely Romania. The second question related to this analysis is whether the relationship between state and church can be defined holistically by referring to the term "church" in general. Was the relationship between the state and the Romanian Orthodox Church as the national church similar to the relation between the state and smaller
