TEACHER DOCTORS AT THE THEOLOGICAL ACADEMY IN CLUJ

  • Mircea Gelu Buta

Abstract




The work of a doctor, as well as that of a priest, is based on the consciousness of a mission of “man towards man”. In understanding that religion, medicine, Church and Hospital are inseparable allies trying to save the human being from its shortcomings, Bishop Nicholae Ivan tried to attract to the Theological Academy in Cluj renowned doctors of the time, and disciplines such as pastoral medicine or hygiene were found constantly in the curricula. This essay aims to provide the forms and way in which these teacher physicians have come to concretize the project of Christian medicine, a model in which the initiative has proven to be creative.
