De l'oppression a la libert L'Eglise en Hongrie, 1945-1992. Chronique des evements ordinaires et extraordinaires, temoins et temoignages. By Paul G. Bozsoky and Laszlo Lukacs. [Politiques & Chretiens.] (Paris: Beauchesne. 1993. Pp. vi, 381. 198 E)

A better title for the book could have been: "From freedom to freedom."

In the second part of the volume one finds some testimonies. Two historic personalities,Vilmos Apor, bishop of Gyor, who was killed by a Soviet soldier in 1945, and Cardinal Josef Mindszenty, the "two columns of God's presence,' are presented by Bozsoky. A third author of the book, a Catholic journalist, Istvan Elmer, has published here interviews with five personalities persecuted in these times: Vendel Endredy, abbot of the Cistercians; Istvan Tabody, a Catholic priest who organized clandestine priestly ordinations; Pius Halasz, a Cistercian monk; Gyorgy Bulanyi, a Piarist father, the founder of his movement, and Agnes Timar, a Cistercian nun and founder who started with the monastic life in the time of persecution and whose community survived the clandestinity. …
