In research on the religiosity of Poles conducted in the 1990s by OBOP, the percentage of believers has always fluctuated around 95%. At the same time, the unemployment rates also reached record values. The crisis strengthened the society’s need for spirituality, which allowed things not necessarily possible to happen in other times.
