Project Summary

My thesis, entitled ‘Martyrs and Memory: The Politics of Memorialising Anti-Communist Spiritual Resistance in Romania’, explores the role of religion in the development and political instrumentalization of memories of suffering under communism. It focuses on Romania in a European and global context, paying particular attention to links with France and the US, to investigate how religious ideas and networks have shaped new transnational right-wing political formations.
