    CATHOLICISM
    image

    Most Slavic populations gradually adopted Christianity between 6th and 10th century, and consequently their old pagan beliefs declined.

    The Catholic Church, also known as the Roman Catholic Church, is the world's largest Christian church, claiming more than a billion members. Its leader is the Pope. The Church defines its mission as spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, administering the sacraments and exercising charity.

    The Catholic Church is one of the oldest continuous Christian institutions in the world and has played a prominent role in the history of Western civilisation. It believes that it was founded by Jesus Christ, that its bishops are successors of his apostles and that the Pope as the successor of St. Peter possesses a universal primacy.

    The Church's worship is centered on the Eucharist, in which Catholics believe bread and wine are transubstantiated into the body and blood of Christ. Other Catholic beliefs include Purgatory, Papal infallibility and the immaculate conception and bodily assumption into heaven of Mary.

    Catholic Slavs:

        * Bunjevci
        * Croats
        * Kaszubians
        * Krashovans
        * Poles
        * Silesians
        * Slovaks
        * Slovenes

    Roman Catholicism is more prevalent among Moravians than Czechs. Czechs rather tend to be agnostic. There is also a number of Protestants and Calixtines.
