Project description

With the start of the 19th century, the Romanian countries entered a truly European route. Whether we refer to the cultural circuits or to the economic, political or judicial ones, the European influence is strongly felt in this area, and it imposes culture and civilisation patterns. We can therefore speak of a comeback to the native cradle of the Romanian people, namely, to the European cultural sources that appeared and were preserved along with the Latin origin of the Romanian people. It is upon this foundation that the European formation routes of the Romanian intelligentsia were built, together with the cultural, institutional and judicial premises taken from within the country, and the political-administrative and cultural dialogue that was kept alive during the interwar period. From this point of view, one can always talk about the role of the Romanian intelligentsia in the reaffirmation of the plenary actualised European myth in the studied historic period.

After a European century of building the “nation states” and after a first world war with tragic consequences, all announced by Oswald Spengler’s so-called ideology of the “European decline,” the European intellectual elite enters a febrile phase, concerned with the common European destiny. More plans, societies and continental and regional unification projects emerge, granting the new century a new, Pan-European preoccupation, after a 19th century of national achievements. In various formulas, almost all national states, especially the newly configured ones, enter this concert. Romania, too, manages to play founding roles in these constructions. Through its intellectual elite, our country manifested itself intensely on the European plan, gaining recognition especially due to its great personalities that represented its name. This was not a random thing, since the great majority of the Romanian intellectuals, assimilated by the political class, came via European formation routes and had access, therefore, to the same schools as the European intellectual elite.

Therefore, the interwar debate referring to the European unification had found, at the time, a serious partner in this part of the continent; we are talking about Romania and its representatives in intercontinental relations. If one were to sequentially remember the main European unification projects of the time, promoted by Kalergi, Briand or Tardieu, one could name Romanian personalities such as V. Madgearu, G.G. Mironescu, Nicolae Titulescu or Iuliu Maniu, who promptly positioned our country on the routes of these projects.
