On February 3, the body of Metropolitan of Cluj, Alba, Crisana and Maramures Bartolomeu Anania was entombed in a lavish ceremony presided by Patriarch Daniel Ciobotea of the dominant Romanian Orthodox Church, Democrat-Liberal Prime Minister Emil Boc, an impressive cohort of righteous monks, upcoming church hierarchs and pious politicians, and thousands of weeping faithful.

Representatives of both Orthodox and non-Orthodox churches were in attendance. He is controversial for a number of reasons on which his chorus of adulators have remained silent. First is his collaboration with the dreaded communist political police, the Securitate, attested directly by the information notes Anania filed after he got out of jail inand indirectly by his prolonged visit in the United States on behalf of the Romanian Orthodox Church at a time when travel outside communist Romania was possible only with the approval of and within the strict confines established by the Securitate.

Anania signed two information notes against Antonie Plamadeala, who was to become the Metropolitan of Transylvania during the period.


As all other Romanian Orthodox leaders, with the exception of Metropolitan of Banat Nicolae Corneanu, Anania repeatedly denied any known and conscious collaboration with the communist secret police, even after hard evidence was brought before the public.

His supporters believed either than the information notes did not do that much damage to those named in them recte Plamadeala or that Anania accepted to collaborate for a good cause — helping his church avoid obliteration at the hands of the communist authorities.

Second is his fascist past. But the fact is that, as other Romanians who were politically persecuted by the communists, Anania was never a true believer in democrat principles, which he never internalized, even after spending over a decade in North Bartolokeu. His communist-era persecution was the result of his batolomeu extreme-right allegiances, first as a member of the Brotherhood of the Cross Fratiile de Crucerecruited when he was only 15 years old, and then as a sympathizer of the Iron Guard, the brutal Romanian inter-war fascist organization responsible for a string of pogroms.

Memorii glosses over this dark past, claiming bartoloeu the Brotherhood was not anti-semitic in spirit and deed but had all the characteristics of a benign boy scouts organization, and that his involvement with the Iron Guard was limited to attending the funeral of a known Guard member.

In other words, according to his MemoriiAnania was imprisoned by the communists because bartolmoeu just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, not as a result of any evidence of political extremism on his part.

Among his former students and disciples, some of whom went on to pursue doctoral studies in Western universities, fascism, not democracy, remains the accepted alternative to communism.

Third are the radical, ultra-conservative positions that Anania adopted after the collapse of the communist regime. Seeing the faults of the older Synod members did not help Anania acknowledge his own.


His opposition to the restitution of places of worship to the Greek Catholic Church, reconstituted in post-communist times, is well known. His Euro-skepticism drew support from nationalists of all persuasions, but reflected a poor understanding of history and democracy. Anania certainly led a complex, and often dangerous, life that should be considered in both its positive and not so positive aspects, as historian Cristian Vasile rightly suggested 9.

If his legacy is to be preserved and his work is to be continued, as his testament called for, then I hope that his many vociferous and self-righteous disciples will not endeavor to perpetuate his clerical conservatism, Euro-skepticism, fascist allegiances, and anti-democratic sentiment.
