Birth and Hindering of Religious Studies at the University of Cluj. A Historical Overview

Codruta Cuceu, Horatiu Crisan


This study will focus on the birth of studies related to the domain of religion at the University of Cluj, starting with the interwar period, then following with the communist period. The paper aims to offer an exhaustive depiction of what has been done in the academic milieu from 1919 to 1989, concerning the domain of religion, excluding Theological studies. We tried to make the connection, from a historical perspective, between the changes supervened in the Romanian official, political ideology and its representation in the University curricula, on the basis of the Annual Reports issued by the Rectors Office of the University of Cluj in the analyzed period of time.
