Elements of religious rivalry in the structural architecture of Vrancea county (Romania)

Raluca Ioana Horea-Serban

Abstract


Studied by means of the statistical data provided by the censuses carried on in 1930, 1992 and 2002, the religious structure of the population of Vrancea County obviously outlines this territory as a genuine nucleus of Orthodoxism resistance with a visible tendency of strengthening its denomination homogeneity in the last two census years, primarily as a consequence of the vanishing of a component with a significant specific weight in the past local religious landscape (the Mosaic one). However, the recent aggressive dynamics of the Neo-Protestant branches can be regarded as a vector which is favourable to the propagation of some novelty religious trends and ideas, able to alter the hierarchy of the religious minorities.
