REPERE ALE CONDUITEI STATULUI ÎN RELAŢIA CU ARTA RELIGIOASĂ ORTODOXĂ. CAZUL BANATULUI


Cristina Tudor

Abstract:
The establishment of communism in Romania has led to major changes throughout the country. The Romanian Orthodox Church did not remain outside the whirlwind of Romania, which was forced to adapt to the new changes. The Orthodox religious art did not undergo major changes, the tradition of the Orthodox Church continued to be respected, the Neo-Byzantine style being predominant. Many of the works of church painting, repairs or renovations were most often made from the own funds of the place of worship, to which were added the funds of the Diocesan Council or the donations of the believers. The hierarchs of the Orthodox Church in Banat sought to identify ways in which they could preserve the Banat Orthodox religious heritage. Analyzing the situation of orthodox religious art in Banat for the communist period, a bridge can be created to reconstruct the evolution of religious art. Post-December historiography has not paid attention to this theme, with priority being the repression of the communist regime over the Church, the situation of the Greek-Catholic Church, as well as the destruction of churches or religious historical monuments.
