The dramatic changes in the political, economic, cultural and religious panorama in Eastern Europe between 1989 and 1991 demanded new responses from both churches and ecumenical bodies. Also in Estonia the churches were suddenly faced with changes in legislation on religious denominations and church-state relations were entailed to provide for the restitution of church property. Other questions at stake were: how do churches understand themselves in the new circumstances? How are their relations to one another? And what is their role in the new society? In addition the churches in Estonia also had to struggle with the answers in a profound secular context. As a country in the former communist Eastern Europe Estonia tells its own newsworthy story. This article highlights the ecumenical relations and developments since 1991 in Estonia.
