Description
Summary:The existence of Catholic communities in Moldavia has raised questions not for the Orthodox population from neighbourhood but mostly for the Hungarian and Romanian history researchers. The term csangos was first used in 1783 by Petru Zold, a priest, in order to describe these communities and the term remained as such in the Hungarian historyography (and in the last decade it has also been borrowed by the Romanian historyography) but is not accepted and used by the majority of people belonging to the community. The present case-study dedicated to the villages situated near Roman attempts to answer some questions related to the origin and evolution of these communities without the intention of an exhaustive study.
