Summary/Abstract: The article is titled Against the „lukewarm faith”: the correlation between the Modernism and the Church at that time when the Czech searched for modern ideas of religiosity. The article describes the Czech society in the XIX and XX century searching for possible changes of the Church as an institution. And attempts to approach new ideas of religiosity to be more suitable to the needs of the modern world. Modernism as itself animated many questions about the correlation between the religion and the modernity. At this time in many countries in Europe an anxiety about the meaning of religion in the modern world was a big challenge. But the situation in Czech was exceptional. This because the memory of the Jan Hus’s martyr, the history of hussite wars and their consequences. After becoming Czechoslovak Republic in 1918 the Czech people mass seceded from the Catholic Church. This was interpreted as a sign of a deep secularisation of the Czech society and their religious indifference. The aim of the article is to prove that the religious processes of the Czech society were much more complicated and did not mean that they were secularised in the sense of atheism.
