The Great Orthodox Zone: Abandoning the Conflictual Paradigma for the Paradigma of Continuity (Iorga versus Huntington)
AbstractThis article is representing a personal view about the premises of the constitution, at the beginning of the XXI century, of a common cultural space, by using in a creative way the existing and the historical links between different countries and regions claiming the same religious identity. Moreover, this type of common identity is not an obsolete key to read the particularities of these regions and countries but, on a contrary, it represents a positive and rich pattern of understanding the real needs and profiles of these countries, proving the necessity and the actuality of a serious utilisation of the religious connections between countries and regions in order to bring peace and not conflict, prosperity and not poverty, knowledge and not obscurantism. Far from being a synonym with obscurantism, fundamentalism and other „politically correct” labels (proving rather a simplistic and superficial view about the true role of religion in our contemporary world and in the establishment of a real cooperation between nations), the orthodoxy (in this case) has represented many times - during the peace periods- the solid base for a common identity and solidarity between countries, creating an original culture and a personal modality of understanding the role of human being in the world, that presents interest even in our time.
