The Law of State on Religious Communities during Zogu's Governance and Enver Hoxha's Governance (The Example of the Catholic Church in Albania)

Nertila Haxhia Ljarja


This essay is a historical analysis which compares the common cause as well as differing viewpoints from the people with regards to the Catholic Church. The main focus is on the law that required it to be under complete control of the state. Both time periods that have been analysed below, had the ultimate aim of separating the state from religion. The varying political views that were followed managed to alienate the relationship with the Catholic Church in Albania, this was especially the case during times of Communism.
