ABSTRACT
In order to regain independence from the Ottoman Empire, Romania joined military forces with the Russian Empire. The Orthodox clergy also joined the brave Romanian soldiers, either directly, by taking part in battle, or indirectly, by helping the army with packages and money. Primate Metropolitan Calinic Miclescu played an important role in the war too, praying for those difficult times, as well as bishops Melchisedec Ştefănescu and Atanasie Stoenescu. The latter had a great influence over his subordinate priests, given that it is agreed upon that the clergy from the region of Oltenia played one of the most important parts in these fights. The recognition of Romania as independent by the Great Powers came with the price of trading Bessarabia to Russia in exchange for Dobrogea.
