Manifestări ale românilor bihoreni împotriva legislației anti-românești apponyiene (1907 - 1908)
The Austro-Hungarian dualism (1867-1918) was for the Transylvanians` history a crucial point. For the orthodox confessional Education the hard times begin in 1907 when the Hungarian Parliament, at the initiative of Apponyi, approves a law that intends to transform the confessional Romanian schools into a state`s institution that uses Hungarian as teaching language. Therefore, the Romanians from Transylvania showed their vehement disapproval, a proof of this, being the various protests from the region, also mentioned in the publications of those times. Although the laws were active only three years, the consequences were bad for the Orthodox confessional learning system from Transylvania, as 459 confessional schools had to be abrogated.
