• Subiect: Abstract: The Episcopacy of Roman expanded over 4 districts at the end of the 20th century: Roman, Bacau, Putna and Tecuci. Some significant battles caused by the First World War took place on these particular territories. In those difficult times, when the country struggled, the clergy and the parishioners managed to give life to the greater sought ideals of unity and selflessness. The bishop of Roman at that time, Teodosie Atanasiu, sent ever since the beginning of the war some pastoral letters, appealing to the people's inner strength and set of values and asking them to maintain their country's borders and conserve their Christian faith, to help the men in the military service by means seen fit (raising money or giving them products) and to say prayers in hope of a better future. Some monasteries were temporary tumed into hospitals for the wounded and the priests who remained in their villages took up teaching children, trying to replace the teachers that were called on the front. But there was also a number of 252 priests who actually went on the front under the command of a military archpriest (Constantin Nazarie), a former theology professor at Roman's "St. George" Seminary. General Prezan summed up the beneficiat implication of the Church in the state of affairs ofthe country through this personal opinion: "It is an honour for the clergy to have these priests, that went on the front alongside our soldiers, for they did more than their country ever required them to do".
