    • Abstract:
      The study surveys the evolution of the medieval area of Transylvania from a territory divided between Slavic, Romanian and then also Magyar political structures to a peculiar province under the authority of the Hungarian crown. The study further investigates the religious and confessional transformation occurred throughout the centuries under analysis in the area between the Carpathian mountains (from the Christianization of the local -- «new and old» -- populations to their shift towards Byzantium, in the last century of the First Bulgarian Tsarate, to the changes brought by the expansion of the Latin rite Kingdom of Hungary after the year 1000). The paper equally discusses several controversial matters such as the «question of Romanian continuity» vs. «the immigration theory» or the composite ethnic structure of Transylvania both prior and after it became an institutional part of the Hungarian realm. Special attention is paid to the local political and administrative developments, which preserved (and adapted) Transylvania as a voivodate within the Hungarian kingdom. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
