Abstract

ABSTRACT: One of the coordinates of the Western Enlightenment (Rotaru 2005, 353-354) and of the French Revolution from 1789 was the accentuation of anticlericalism and anti-royalism, leading to the replacement of the Catholic religious education with the laic scientific positivist education. In the 19th century Transylvania, the non-Uniate Orthodox Church and also the Uniate Orthodox Church, through its clerics and their activity for the national and cultural invigoration, will maintain the equilibrium and a constructive beneficial complementarity between the two types of education. The printed books will contribute to the cultivation of the national language and the awakening of the Romanian national consciousness, desiring the union of the three historical provinces; these valuable books required the authors to possess a rigorous religious education, according to the positive educational acquisitions of those times. Moise Fulea is representative for the young generation of the preparation phase of the Revolution from 1848. He involved in the process of finding positive solutions for the equilibrium between the laic and religious education, supporting the teachings of the Orthodox Church and also the Transylvanian Romanian community of the 19th century. The book presented in our work, translated by Moise Fulea and titled Cărticica Năravurilor Bune pentru Tinerime (The Little Book of Good Habits for Young People), celebrates 200 years from its first Romanian edition. It represented an important direction for all the generations before and after the Revolution from 1848.
