ABSTRACT
This material is an introduction to a very delicate issue regarding the Romanian people: theinterlacing of the role of the Church and the State as fundamental institutions of civilization. TheRomanian Principalities can be presented as particular situations in this landscape just because, afterthey had organized themselves according to the Byzantine model, after 1453 they were the first onesto carry on these traditions, obviously with specific traits illustrated as such: coronations, donations,legislations. The role of the Church does not overlap totally the one of the laic state. Each one keeps acertain level of clear autonomy and identity.
