Summary/Abstract: Christian-democracy as a Christian inspired political movement tries to address the diversity of issues of the modern societies and the social model promoted is one capable of resetteling morality in the political realm, offering also a moral basis for the development of responsible policies. Often Christian democracy and political catholicism overlapped in many contexts, and this article tries to outline the deceitfulness of the prejudice that Christian-democracy stops at the border of Orthodoxy. Although Christian democracy has catholic origins, this political movement has the capacity of adapting in other geographical and spiritual meridians. A good example is Romania, a majoritarian Orthodox society in which Christian democracy had an important and visionary role in shaping the first post-communist decade
