Essay on the spiritual dimension of Mircea the Great’s personality and life
Mircea Voivode, took over and fulfilled the initiatives of his predecessors,
but he also promoted new ones, adequate to his time and the country’s needs.
During his reign, for more than thirty years, he succeeded in consolidating and
developing the new state, Wallachia, as the most powerful one in the South
Eastern Europe, while stoping the military and confessional expansion of the
Hungarian (Catholic) Kingdom into these lands, as well as that of the Ottoman
Empire (Muslim). The present study evokes the Great Mircea’s spiritual
dimension, organically embedded in his being and biography. He was particularly
noted as a fighter for Christianity.
