The goals of this article are to examine the most significant developments in Hungary during the 1989-1994 period and to situate them in the larger context of international human-rights law. After briefly setting forth an analytical framework for religious liberty and the separation of church and state, this article describes and analyzes the pertinent Hungarian laws and court decisions, and concludes that despite significant improvement in religion's legal status, its actual situation is precarious.
