Abstract

The exhortation of the Holy Apostle Paul in the Epistle to the Hebrews is providential: „Remember your elders, who spoke the word of God to you; look carefully at how they ended their lives and followed their faith” (Hebrews 13: 7) to highlight the personality and confessional profile of Archpriest Augustin Pop. The descendant of several families of priests, on paternal and maternal line, Father Augustin Pop is originally from the parts of Zalău (Bozna place), Sălaj County in the family of the Orthodox priest Ioan and Maria Pop. Despite the difficult childhood he had, after graduating from the Hungarian-language Pedagogical School in Cluj-Napoca, being called by God to the priesthood, he took his steps in 1922 to the Theological Academy in Sibiu, where he was guided by strong faith in God and by the teachers here, he begins his mission in the Lord’s vineyard, later bringing honor to his family, the Orthodox Church and our Romanian Nation.
