"[M]any of [the essays] offer excellent treatment of particular research questions and shed light on previously understudied topics."- Sebastian Rimestad, Ab Imperio

"This volume of collected essays offers an opportunity to investigate key questions regarding imperial understandings of faith, confessional divides and loyalties, and the relationship between national culture and religion in a space less known to historians of religion in Europe despite a rich specialist historiography. It ventures beyond well-trodden concerns for Polish Catholicism and Russian Orthodoxy to consider varied religious and national identities in successive multi-ethnic states of central and eastern Europe. ... Collectively, these essays provide critical insight into evolving, elite literature on national identity and remind us of the important function that media plays in disseminating and consolidating sentiment. ... The volume's assertion of regional differences among Uniates as well as adherents of other faiths is especially compelling. ... [T]he diversity of expression is readily apparent in the capable research of these experts."- Matthew D. Pauly, Michigan State University, The Slavic Review (Spring 2022)
