Abstract

This text investigates specific needs that churches in urban cities in Central-Europe have to pay attention to. Firstly it shows the historical implications of the traditional Paroichia coming up from rural societies of medieval times. Second it shows how churches in urban, postmodern societies should recognize the lifestyles and the needs of city-dwellers. Thirdly it describes the concept of ‘Ecclesiolopolis’, which describes the church for urban European people in the 21st Century.
