Vlad Țepeș, „Vampirul”

Rezumat. Vlad the Impaler’s bloody acts were undoubtedly exaggerated on purpose in the German version of the stories about the cruel Romanian ruler. This version was spread by his opponents and was greatly enjoyed by the common people of those times, who had a taste for cruelty. A serious analysis of Vlad the Impaler’s image as it is described in the Transylvanian Saxon stories will unquestionably prove them unreal and rather hilarious, even for the most experienced readers of Bram Stoker’s novel. At the same time, it becomes clear to everybody that the terrible punishment of impaling the wrongdoers, as well as the other methods of execution and brutal torture of the prisoners sentenced to death or Vlad’s opponents were by no means groundless actions or mere acts of vengeance. On the contrary, they were dictated by strong political reasons, such as the consolidation of the reign, the correct use of justice, the creation of a safe environment in the country, the economic, social, cultural and religious organisation and development of the country, the wellbeing of all its inhabitants and, last but not least, the consolidation and expansion of the mediaeval Romanian state at the south of the Carpathians and the development and training of the army for the confrontations with the Ottoman Empire.

De ce l-a trădat Matia Corvin pe Vlad Țepeș?

Abstract. With the intention of keeping his forces intact in the event of an armed confrontation with his rival at the crown of Hungary, the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire of German descent, Frederick III of Habsburg, King Matthias Corvinus travelled towards the Danube very late, to take part in the anti-Ottoman „crusade” of 1462. It was only on 17 September that he arrived at Turda, Transylvania, from where he advanced towards Sibiu, a city he would enter around  26 September. After a few days, more precisely on 30 September, he headed to Brasov, a city he would reach only by the end of October and “where he met The Impaler”. The main cause of “the young king Matthias Corvin’s attitude was undoubtedly the fact that in 1462 he was still focused on his conflict with Emperor Frederick III of Habsburg”, who continued to challenge his right to the throne of Hungary and raised claims to it himself.  Although Matthias Corvin “said that he was going to Wallachia to release Dracula (to whom he had given a blood relative in marriage) from the hands of the Turks”, he pursued his own interests and proved disloyal to Dracula. He “captured him and took him to Transylvania”. Consequently, in those days it was justly believed that Matthias Corvin acted as if he “had had an understanding with the Turks”, all the more so because, against the general opinion, he proclaimed „the other Dracula (i.e, Radu the Fair, Vlad the Impaler’s brother), whom the Turks had already appointed ruler over that country, as great Prince and Lord” of Wallachia.

„Cruciatul” Vlad Țepeș și organizarea armatei țării sale și a sistemului defensiv al acesteia

Abstract. When we refer to the remarkable merits of Vlad the Impaler as the head of state and of the armies, we cannot ignore his taking over a political-military conception that has its origin in the old Byzantine imperial tradition of crusade, Dracula being, undoubtedly, the first of our voivodes who rose to fight against the Ottoman Turks after the entry of Byzantium under the rule of Sultan Muhammad II the Conqueror. Of course, he also made this takeover because he considered himself the rightful follower of the anti-Ottoman struggle of the Basileus and the great Romanian rulers, especially after the death of John Hunyadi, "the last great European crusader". Seeking to strengthen and protect the royal authority and the economic and social-political bases of the anti-Ottoman resistance, Vlad the Impaler took numerous measures to strengthen his army, making full use of the revenues of the kingdom for its endowment and training, according to the requirements of the time.  Being "agile and capable as possible in the military affairs", a fact acknowledged even by his mortal enemies, the Ottoman Turks, the fierce Romanian voivode "increased and strengthened the military institution with people raised from the people to small ranks of boyars, exempt from taxes and benefits in exchange for military jobs". Dracula also paid special attention to the defense system of his country, strengthening him "with fortress cities, outpost forts on the probable directions of invasion and fortified monasteries".

Vlad Țepeș și politica sa internă

Abstract: When he came for the second time at the helm of Wallachia, Vlad the Impaler took a series of measures aimed at strengthening the central authority. Seeking to annihilate the anarchic tendencies of the great boyars, the vindictive descendant of the Bessarabians “from the beginning set up a regime of terror”, inaugurating his new reign by massacring those opposed to the political line promoted by him. Thus, the consolidation of the central power and the economic development, carried out by Vlad the Impaler, allowed the mobilization of all the forces available to Wallachia in order to stop the Ottoman expansion and prevent the disappearance of the Romanian South-Carpathian statehood, and not only (because his reckless deeds of arms saved from extinction the other two Romanian countries, Transylvania and Moldova, as well as the whole central and western European Christianity), a goal successfully achieved by the vigorous descent of the Dracula Bessarabians, who proved to be the right man at the right place, and providentially appeared just then, when there was greater need of him, as God made it possible whenever the Romanians faced great difficulties in their long and troubled existence.

Despre Vasile Maniu la aniversarea a 195 de ani de la nașterea lui

Abstract: He was born at Lugoj on 18 December 1824. He started school in his native town and then he continued with the secondary classes probably at the new-founded seminary in Lugoj in 1836.  Some of his biographers claimed that he later studied at Arad and Timişoara (Ioan B. Mureşianu, Vasile Maniu, in ’Luceafărul’, Timişoara, March 1940). But his name has not been recorded in any of the registers of the sole Piarist School of Timişoara (Eusebiu Narai, Academicianul bănăţean Vasile Maniu, in Oameni de seamă ai Banatului – the papers of the Symposium of Uzdin, 21 April 2001, Augusta Publishing, Timişoara, 2002). It is certain that he attended classes at the Pedagogic School in Caransebeş (Traian Topliceanu, Vasile Maniu, in ’Vestul’, Timişoara, issue 52, 3 July 1930). He graduated from the Law and Philosophy School in Budapest. In 1847 he settled in Bucharest. In 1848, he joined Nicolae Bălcescu, C.A Rosetti and other militants for liberty and social progress in accordance with the revolutionary European spirit of the epoch.

Istoria medievală a Banatului reflectată în opera lui Gheorghe Cotoșman

Abstract: Born on 5 September 1904 at Sânnicolau Mare, Gheorghe Cotoşman finished the Pedagogic School in  1924. From 1924 to 1927 he attended courses at the Theological Academy of Arad. Between 1928-1937 he functioned as a parish in Jimbolia, Timiş county, where he erected a church. From 1937 to 1948 he worked as a professor of Church History and Patrology at the Theological Academy of Ca-ransebeş.  In 1948 he moved to Timişoara, working at the Metropolitan Seat of the Banat. Between 1949 and 1950 he was a cultural councillor at the Archbishopry of Timişoara, then its vicar (1950-1968). In his secular activity he was a member of the History section  of the Institutul Social Banat-Crişana  of Timişoara.  Gheorghe Cotoşman was one of the most prolific Banatian researchers in the period be-tween 1935-1975 spotlighting the history of the Church and some important aspects concerning the Middle Ages of the land. A critical study about his historical research has never been made and the most representative part of his works calls for a critical  edition. He died in 1977.
