The article discusses the involvement of the Catholic Church in the politics of Austria during the government of Federal Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg in the mid-1930s. The author particularly focuses on the church's attitudes toward the question of Austrian independence from Nazi Germany and the problem of a potential restoration of the Habsburg monarchy. Topics discussed include the visit of the Bishop of Linz, Austria, Johannes Gföllner, to Crown Prince in exile Otto von Habsburg and his mother, Empress Zita, in 1937, relations between Austria and Italy, and Austrofascism.
