Ioan Lupaș and the monarchy. Royal moments in the life of a man from Săliştea
When speaking and writing about Ioan Lupaș, the main aspects of his biography are those related to his academic, university and pastoral activity. A unique page of his life, almost not studied at all, is his connection with the monarchy. If, in the case of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, the reporting is made from the perspective of the Romanian historian and patriot, his relationship with the Royal House of Romania is direct, warm and full of reciprocal joy. Appreciated and loved by King Ferdinand, Ioan Lupas was twice minister in royal Romania, the establishment of the communist regime bringing him severe suffering because of this luminous episode of his life.
