The Meanings of Romanian Patriotism in Three Texts from the Beginning of the 20th Century

Fanel Teodorascu


In this paper, we intend to follow how the patriotism was explained to Romanians during the period preceding Romania's entry into the First World War. We consider our approach important and because on 1st of December 2018 the Romanians celebrated for the one hundredth time the Day of the Great Union. In our research, three texts, each of them belonging to another author, will be followed. The first text represents an orthodox Christian point of view on patriotism, the second text comes from the sphere of politics, and the last text on which we will stop embodies the military vision of the matter dealt with here. In addition to these three texts, we will also use articles that have been published in magazines such as: Revista Generală a Învăţământului (The General Magazine of Education), Revista Istorică Română (the Romanian Historical Review), Revista Grănicerilor (the Guardian Magazine), Revista Istorică Română (the Historic Magazine), Biserica Ortodoxă Română (the Romanian Orthodox Church,) Furnica, etc.
