In 1989, religious organisations in Czechoslovakia were liberated from 40 years of oppressive control under the Communist regime. Contrary to expectations, however, a decade of Czech democracy has failed to see the emergence of a stable relationship between the state and the Catholic Church. The cultural legacies of Communism, in particular a historic anti-Catholicism, are commonly held to be the causal factors. A different argument is developed here, namely, that opposing preferences for democracy, pursued within the structural consequences of the 'transition', have a greater impact on the present situation.
