This book is about the state of religious affairs on the eve of the foreign military occupations, changes in religious life during the first Soviet and Nazi occupations, the second Soviet occupation and the Soviet control imposed on religious life. This period is associated with closing down of churches and monasteries, the Soviet control over the network of parishes, repressing priests and restricting their religion-related studies, restricting the rights to manifest the faith, the Soviet anti-religious propaganda, the de-Christianisation of social life, the Soviet interfering into management affairs of the Church, the resonance of the Second Vatican Council in Lithuania. The movement for the rights of believers appeared due to the Soviet oppression. The persecution of believers ended with the erosion of the Soviet regime.
