Further Details
Abstract Communism has been sometimes described as a political religion. Marxism- Leninism, as the official ideology of state socialism was also qualified as a perverse form of political theology, if not as a counter-theology. The paper explores the theological-political assumptions that seem to underlie the various critiques, official, institutional and scholarly, addressed to the Romanian brand of communism after its downfall.
