The largest of the Yugoslav nationalist movements that emerged in the late 1960s was the Croatian National Movement, which during the period 1973 to 1989 was heavily suppressed by Tito's communists, while at the same time the Croatian Catholic Church was outspoken both in the cause of nationalism and in the fight for religious liberty. This chapter gives an account of the role of the Croatian Catholic Church in the development of the nation between 1970 and 1984. It discusses the Catholic Church in relation to the Croatian National Movement in 1970–2, the announcement of the resumption of the Great Novena (a nine‐year long jubilee) in 1974, and the birth of the Catholic nation of Croatia.
