Summary/Abstract: The years 2004–2005 were a cultural censorship for Poland, the crisis of identity associatedwith European integration, and with illness and death of the Polish pope. Since that time, slowly but steadily, trends have been outlined indicating a change in the nature of Polish religiosity. A critical analysis of the situation presented in the article shows that religious subjectivism, individualization, syncretism, and the deinstitutionalization of faith and morality, associated with such typical enriching and consuming postindustrial societies phenomena as the progressive atomization and alienation, unexpectedly turn out for the Polish Church a problem more serious than traditional atheism or agnosticism.
