Abstract

It is a simple and known truth that the Christian Churches played the most important role in the formation of the world view of the society lived in the villages and small towns in the Hungarian countryside. This paper shows some relevant examples, how the local Calvinist pastors interpreted the meanings of war in the countryside, how could they give consolation for the religious rural inhabitants in the small and closed communities. The results based on the primary ecclesiastical sources, esp. church reviews and materials of preach. The Calvinist church in general followed and served the nationalistic state propaganda of the interwar Hungarian state.
