#7 Lavinia Stan

This is the seventh episode of the Conversation Series, with the guestspeaker Lavinia Stan.

After 1989, the Romanian Orthodox Church was called to re-evaluate its collaboration with the repressive communist rule, as well as the fascist regime that preceded it. However, instead of honestly assessing past wrongs and giving satisfaction to victims, this re-evaluation sought to consolidate the Church’s partnership with the Romanian state and pre-eminence among religious denominations. Drawing on a number of prominent cases, this talkshows the interplay of Orthodoxy, memory and nationalism in one post-communist country.
