According to Dorin Dobrincu, research fellow of the Iasi History Institute of the Romanian Academy, little of the history of Evangelical Christians in Romania has been written because of the lack of academic interest in the subject, persecution of Evangelicals by the state and by the Orthodox Church, and the resulting lack of academic training among Evangelicals. Dobrincu plans to write such a history that "would contain the beginnings of Evangelical denominations, the integration of Evangelicals in the Romanian context, and the impact of Evangelicals in Romania. One of the main tasks of the investigation would be the relation between state and church, especially how the state viewed Evangelicals, knowing that the state religion, Orthodoxy, and Romanian leaders had a close relationship, which often burst into persecutions against small denominations." Danut Manastireanu, World Vision International, considers Dobrincu "probably at this time the only Evangelical academic historian in Romania." To inquire about the project contact Professor Dobrincu at the Iasi History Institute of the Romanian Academy, Str. Lascar Catargi, nr. 15, Iasi-6600, Romania; tel: 0040-32-212614; e-mail: xeno@mail.dntis.ro.
