Summary/Abstract: „Cărarea Împărăției” was written by Arsenie Boca, between 1946 and 1949, being continuously ”polished” during these years, as Monahia Zamfira Constantinescu declares in her work Notă asupra Editiei I (Note on the First Edition). I used The Fifth Edition of the book, the Priest Conf. Dr. Simion Todoran and Monahia Zamfira Constantinescu edition, Deva, 2006, Publishing of the Romanian Saint Orthodox Episcopate of Arad, 358 pages. In Notă asupra Editiei I (Note on the First Edition), it’s mentioned that the quotations from the Holy Scripture were given by Arsenie Boca 95 according to the 1936 edition of the Holy Scripture and the 1939 edition translated by the Priests Prof. Vasile Radu and Gala Galaction. Our study highlights and analyse the main morphologic, syntactic, rhetoric and pragmatic particularities of Arsenie Boca’s book, „Cărarea Împărăției”. In this analysis, we use, also, „Cuvinte vii” (Living Words), edition of father Arsenie Boca edited by Bishop Daniil Stoenescu PhD, printed at Deva, in 2006. The Edition includes, as stated by Bishop Daniil Stoenescu, in the edition's „Foreword”, titled „The Homilies" of Prislop, 137 Sunday and Holiday sermons, evangelic meditations and spiritual words of various sizes, written by Father Arsenie Boca, at „Sâmbăta de Sus" and Prislop Monasteries, between November 25, 1946 and March 27, 1950.
