Istoria, organizarea, muzeul și arhiva Protopopiatului Ortodox Săliște (1628-1989)

Mircea-Gheorghe ABRUDAN

The Romanian Orthodox Church in Transylvania, as well as the other Transylvanian historical churches, is the creator and keeper of an architectural, artistic, archival-documentary and bibliophile priceless heritage. If the architectural-artistic one is more visible and appreciated, the archival-documentary one is still not known and valued through conferences, exhibitions and in the historiography, as it should be. Our study is dedicated to one of the regional administrative structures of the Orthodox Church in Transylvania, presenting, firstly, the historical and organizational evolution of the Săliște deanery, and in the second part, the history, organization and content of the parish and deanery museum and archive. The Săliște Orthodox Deanery was certified in the 17 th century, being formed by the parishes of the Săliște Chair and then by the Saxon Chair of Sibiu. In the 18 th century, Săliștea was one of the centers of orthodox resistance in the face of the forced imposition of uniatism with the Church of Rome. Between 1805-1884 the seat of the deanery was in the town of Sibiu, therefore the deanery was oficialy called Sibiu II and was led by priests with higher studies of theology, history, pedagogy and philosophy at the Universities of Vienna, Leipzig and Budapest. They have taken great care for the patrimony and memory of the parish and the Săliște deanery, so one of the richest Orthodox deanery archives in Transylvania is preserved here. The archive and the Săliște parochial Museum represents a place of memory that testifies the rich history of spirituality, traditions, culture, art, commerce, personalities and Romanian life in the Sibiu area.
