Slavic Review

"The subject of Berglund’s book is difficult to pin down. The author defines it as “thinking about God”, but one might also call it a group portrait of how leading Czech public figures struggled with the role of faith and religion in modern Czech society from around 1900 to 1938. Some of these people, like the Prague-based Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik and the writer Jaroslav Durych, were devoted Catholics, but most of Berglund’s protagonists searched for, and tried to express “something higher” in their political, social, or artistic practice outside the established churches."
