Pr. Neculai V. Hodoroabă, a militant in the struggle for the great reunification of Transylvania with Romania
The article evokes the personality of the military priest Neculai V. Hodoroabă, a participant in the First World War. He wrote a diary that shows the great love for his nation and country burning like a flame in his soul. This diary of the priest Neculai Hodoroabă is undoubtedly a valuable tool for historians, a testimony of a cleric present on the Romanian front of the World War I, describing, from partisan positions, his regiment’s contribution in the battles of 1916-1917. It is also a valuable source for the Orthodox Church history, speaking of its role in the struggle of the Romanian people for union.
