Abstract: Past research suggests that religious nationalism increases during periods of dramatic change and insecurity. This article uses survey data to examine religious nationalism in postcommunist Europe. The analysis of the data reveals an increase of religious nationalism over the last two decades in these countries. This analysis also reveals that there has been a contradictory decline of religiosity in these countries during the same period. These findings are discussed in relation to national development, institutional pride, global populism, and the literature on religiosity.
