Abstract

It may be useful to survey briefly the development of the Christian/Marxist dialogue which took place in the 1960s between East and West Europeans. Christianity and Marxism were long hostile to each other and there seemed to be little that could bridge the gap between them. Deep-rooted mistrust and fears on both sides had to be overcome before the step from "anathema to dialogue," as Roger Garaudy put it, could finally be taken. In the 1970s we have come to a new phase of this development which I would call "from dialogue to alliance."
