National motivated Inner-Catholic conflicts and Anticlericalism in the Austro-Hungarian Littoral (Trieste, Istria, Fiume/Rijeka), 1890-1914
The project of Péter Techet analyses the impact that ethno-national conflicts had on the local Catholic church and religious life in Trieste and Fiume/Rijeka. It investigates what role the Slavophil policies of Pope Leo XIII played in this context and how conflicts in the Austrian and Hungarian parts of the coastline unfolded differently.
