This ISHWRA seminar by Anca Sincan talking about, ‘An army of nuns: the network of Greek Catholic women who built the underground Church in 1950s Romania’.
This paper explores the underground networks of women religious that developed after the enforced union of the Greek Catholic Church with the Romanian Orthodox Church in 1948. It is often the case that the history of the Church in East Central Europe during Communism is a narrative about men. A top down interpretation that is linked with hierarchies and power, the history of the secular and religious central administrations of State and Church is one that all too frequently ignores women.
