The Politics of Rite - Jesuit, Uniate, and Romanian Ethnicity in Eighteenth-Century Transylvania Hardback
Oldson examines the efforts of religious authorities in Western Europe to reconstruct a Catholic majority in Transylvania after the Ottoman Empire ceded control of the region.
These attempts sparked a pronounced sense of Romanian historical consciousness that resulted in an impassioned religious and cultural resistance, centering on the Eastern liturgy.
