Summary/Abstract: The papers assembled in this volume add much to our understanding of the Enlightenment in Transylvania in general and, in particular, enrich our appreciation of the role of Petru Maior in it. They show him as a priest and an intellectual engaged in the pressing issues of the day and committed to improving the status of the Romanians as a nation and, at another level, as a series of small communities, villages, that were confronting the problems of everyday life and the ultimate questions of human existence. The authors place Maior and his colleagues and the Transylvanian Enlightenment in a broad context, limited neither by chronology nor by geography.
