Summary/Abstract: The Romanian celebration of religious holidays was an attraction for foreign travelers due to its forms of manifestation. In the extra-Carpathian Romanian society of the 17th and the 18th centuries, the participation at the celebration of the Orthodox Christian calendar has significance not only the piety of Romanians but the socio-political impact which it had on this community also. With the help offered by the notes of the foreign travelers, which we take over with reserve, we tried reconsider our focus from the religious feeling over the social importance of the religious holidays.
