Summary/Abstract: The author of the paper deals with the place and role of the historiography of the Church (Christian historiography) in Slovakia within the last 25 years. He tries to define the framework in which it should operate. By means of the example of the shift of emphasis in the study of the Church’s history he points to the new methodological prospects that are opening up for the Church historians in Slovakia. In conclusion the author critically evaluates the failures of Slovak Christian historiography and suggests the direction it should be heading to become accepted and respected by historians.
