Summary/Abstract: Nifon Criveanu (1889-1970) Nifon Criveanu (1889-1970), bishop of Husi (1933-1939) and metropolitan of Oltenia (1939-1945), was the first Orthodox Romanian hierarch who was discarded from his position by the Communist regime. The reason for his removal was related to his symphaties towards Antonescu’s regime and his missionary and „antisoviet”activity in Transnistria between 1942-1943. Ioan Totu (1931-1992) Recent discovered documents, such as autobiographical materials, verbal and written testimonies of those who knew Ion Totu, led to the reconstruction of a thorough biography of Totu. Although he worked in executive and party structures, including Minister of Foreign Affairs, he considered himself more in the terms of a macro economy specialist. That was the reason for Totu to be appointed First Deputy Prime Minister to coordinate the activities and the economic-financial institutions.
