Abstract

In the second half of the 19th century, especially following the Compromise (1867) that marked the birth of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Roman Catholic lower clergy became increasingly involved in politics. This phenomenon affected even the judgement of the traditional social role of the clergy. The author presents the example of Antal Hegyi, last 19th century parish priest of Csongrád (Csongrád County) and his assistant ministers, showing what consequences openly undertaken political activity during local parliamentary elections could have for the general judgement of the clergy.
