Abstract:[A case of self-defining by means of language: the Calvinist-Romanian texts]
The research of texts written in Romanian and with Latin alphabet in the 17th century shows the image of a well-defined group of Romanians from eastern Banat and the Haţeg Country, which were identified as being a free population living both in villages and towns, and which by adhering to Calvinism detached itself from the rest of the population, persisting in the Orthodox denomination, the majority of it living in villages and characterized by its status of serfdom. The use of the Latin writing, of a specific vocabulary, and a regional pronunciation suggest an attempt of self-defining by means of language, pointing out the development of an integration within the principality’s structures.
Key words:Calvinism, Latin writing, Self defined ethnicity, Calvinist Romanian literature, Hungarian
