Summary/Abstract: The outbreak of the First World War and the proportions it took, made the priests to have an important role in Romanian society. In the years of the war there were profound changes that affected both the church and the clergy. As a result of the mobilization of a significant number of teachers, the priests arrived at the chair. According to the circulars issued by Bishop of Arad, Ioan Ignatie Papp, the priests were involved in the war years in various activities aimed at supporting the state authorities. The situation changed in the autumn of 1918 when the church leadership joined the political class and was involved in the realization of the Great Union.
