THE CLANDESTINE HIERARCHY

Preliminary Remarks and Acknowledgments

During the 20th century, in a lot of countries around the world the church was hindered from free pastoral care during various periods, for various reasons and in various ways. This implicated in several countries, often for a long lasting time, that the Holy See was unable to appoint bishops regularly. Therefore the church was forced to appoint and consecrate bishops in a clandestine way maintaining the ability of taking care of the flock and of ordinating new priests.

A number of clandestine bishops were appointed by the Holy See or were consecrated by bishops with explicite consecrating order of the Holy See, while other bishops, driven by those time’s state of emergency, consecrated suitable considered priests bishop without having consulted Rome. In the meantime, some of these prelates were acknowledged officially or de facto. But even after several years having passed since restitution of religious freedom in most of those areas affected not all names are known yet, while other’s canonical consecration is doubtfull.

For the reasons mentioned above, the following survey can not be complete or free of errors; it seems necessary to emphasize this list is not authorized by the Holy See in any way. Bishops in bold letters were either consecrated with papal order or were acknowledged as regular successor of the apostles afterwards, while papal approbation of the other names is still missing or not verified. Episcopal dignity is doubtfull in the cases of the below mentioned Ukrainians Chorniak, Vynnychuk and Hirniak, the Russian Novikov as well as the Czech Prochatzka, while in elder sources as clandestine bishops mentioned Czechs Przemysl Coufal, O. P., deceased on February 23rd or 24th, 1981, Mons. Ján Krajnák, born on 10.07.1924 and deceased on 25.02.2005, as well as the Slovak Fr. Vojtech Bosanský, S. V. D., born in 1914 and deceased on 22.04.2001, obviously were not consecrated. Whether a clandestine bishop of the former CSSR was of Latin or Byzantine rite can not be verified in each case, for single bishops changed rite.

Most dates are sourcing from the Holy See’s publications, especially from different editions of the Annuario Pontificio, while other details were lent from the rare literature available on this topic or from single homepages believed serious. Special thanks should be paid to Hofrat Dr. Manfred Kierein, Vienna, whose decades lasting researching work and personal contacts with several clandestine bishops testified historical data and rescued some bishop’s names, who helped the church to survive in an extremly difficult period, from being forgotten. Also a thank you to Mr Andreas Brender, M. A., Kirchzarten, Mr Charles N. Bransom, jr., Mango, Fl., and Dr. Remus Bircea Birtz, Cluj, who added worthfull corrections and checked informations. Rev. Fr. Manuil Pyshkovych, M. S. U., from Univ monastery in Peremyshliany rayon, Ukraine, added several before unknown details regarding different hierarchs of Ukraine as well as Metropolitan Ján Babjak, Prešov, did regarding his country. They as well deserve sincere thanks.

Some additional details regarding the hierarchy of the particular local churches and the clandestine bishop's consecrations during the dark period can be found at the link at the respective country.
