DescriptionThis study examines the activities of the Romanian Greek Catholic (Uniate) Metropolitan (Archbishop) of Blaj, Alexandru Sterca-Şuluţiu in support of the Romanian national movement in the Habsburg province of Transylvania between 1860 and 1865. His colleague, the Orthodox Bishop Andrei Şaguna, is the better known Transylvanian Romanian leader in this story, but Sterca-Şuluţiu made a unique contribution through his combative style that reflects his social origin as a member of the minor nobility of Transylvania's western mountain region.
