Abstract in different language: This study focuses on the way the Catholic Church h as been functioning in the Tachov micro- region. We tried to explore what is the perception of the Church itself and of its activities in the region by three groups of key actors: Catholic cler gy, politicians and religious laymen. We also looked into how this perception is related to the w ay historic memory is perceived. The Tachov micro-region was selected because of the fact that the presence of the Catholic Church in the area had traditionally been very strong, which, how ever, changed dramatically after the expulsion of Germans after the World War II. Today, the region ranges among the less religious in the Czech Republic. The findings and conclusions drawn in this article are based on an ethnographic research carried out in the area betwe en January 2014 and February 2015.
