he post-December press, and especially the Orthodox one, which we deal with in this study, has been very little studied and represents, paraphrasing the words of Patriarch Nicodim Munteanu, a “working field of the Lord” that is still waiting to be made. Thus, the end of 1989, after December 21 and especially the beginning of 1990, represents the dawn of the liberation of the church press from silence. The release from censorship imposed by the atheist-communist regime for almost 45 years restored the momentum and courage of young theologians, at that time, who engaged in the new mission of the Romanian Orthodox Church. The new breath that the Orthodox press acquired in the first years of freedom after the Revolution of ῾89 can be seen in the pages of all the official periodicals of the Church, as well as in those that appeared immediately after 1990. The authors are not just theologians (clerics and hierarchs), but also lay people, from different fields, which shows the openness of the Romanian Orthodox Church to the faithful and the general public. This first year of freedom of the Herald „Vestitorului Ortodoxiei Românești” reveals an Orthodox press freed from the rigors imposed by communist censorship, which developed according to the historical moment and which could be further analyzed during the three decades of existence, a goal that remains open to young theologians and researchers of the History of the Romanian Orthodox Church.
