Abstract:
The term composition (synthesis, compositio) was used in the Christological dogma. It considers the union between the hypostasis of the Son of God and the human nature in the person of Christ. It was first used before the Fourth Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon. Its proponents were Origen, the Greek priest Malchion, and St. Cyril of Alexandria. The expression was also used by heretics: Aryans, Paul of Samosata and Severus of Antioch and was contradicted by many Byzantine theologians, including Scythian monks.

 

Keywords: hypostasis synthetos, composition, hypostasis, nature, natural composition.

Abstract:
The article explores the issues of enmity and love and how they shape relationships between human beings in an individualistic world. One key point is that love is a driver of change in people and as such it can positively transform and perfect enemies. The source of love is God, who has loved us from the beginning and sent his only Son to save humankind. The paper highlights points of convergence between the world’s major religions, all of which uphold the fundamental role of love.

 

Keywords: enmity, individualism, Christian love, free will, perfection.

Abstract:
The present paper highlights the contribution of a few music and theology schools from Huşi Diocese in developing church music in the first half of the 20th century. The two church singing schools in Huşi and Bârlad and also the Theology Seminary in Huşi stand out thanks to the positive impact of church music schools in training remarkable church singers and cultivating musical inclinations in future priests in Huşi Diocese. Also the teaching activity of certain church singing teachers such as N. Andriescu, Vasile Ciureanu, Dimitrie N. Pipa, Alexandru Raicu, Ghenadie Honciuc (protopsaltes at Huşi Diocese), Damian Rânzescu, Ştefan Enăchescu (psaltes in Bârlad), C. Nedelcu, Gheorghe Horhocea, Dimitrie Dimitriu, D. Simionescu (conductor) must be emphasized.

Abstract:
Vasile Voiculescu was one of the most important writers in the interwar period, fostering the spiritual quest of the Absolute, drawing especially on imagery of religious origin, and one of the most original landscape poets in the entire Romanian literature, his depictions being infused with an unprecedented poignancy that rendering the spiritual struggle of the contemplator. He was considered, in the context of the other religious poets, the faithful poet. His scientific background, his medical studies, his views on philosophy and all the other fields of culture, art, literature, instead of detaching him from faith brought him closer to it, because his soul was based on the faith from which he built himself a life environment.

 

Keywords: Vasile Voiculescu, Romanian religious poetry.

Abstract:
About Forms and Symbolic Configurations is elaborated with initials and derivative assertions, having informative and formative intentions at the same time. They propose, especially in support of the apprenticeship stages, an overall and a detailed view, visually polarized between the macrocosmic and the microscopic, of some primary and derivative forms, organic and angular, natural and artistically created by the human being. Intending to make some inductions, which give the possibility for manifesting a creative continuum, for the emitter as well as for the receptors, I have thus conceived a wide corollary of various visual ideas and expressions, of various symbolic configurations, which can be continued and developed on their specific coordinates, for
theoretical and applicative purposes.

 

Keywords: informative and formative intentions, primary and derivative forms, theoretical and applicative sense, forms and symbolic configurations, creative continuum.

Abstract:
The paper presents data obtained from testing the  mechanical resistance of degraded and consolidated wood by means of 5- 25% Paraloid B72 in butyl acetate, using the Sibtec Scientific DMP 709607 resistograph. The assessment of the rise in wood hardness after consolidation was conducted by comparing charts and noticing a high and even hardness within the depth of the wood on the samples treated with 15% Paraloid B72.

 

Keywords: wood, Paraloid B72, mechanical resistance.

Abstract:
This article, in the introductory chapter, aims to provide a short history of Horaiţa monastery, situated at the altitude of 660 meters, between the cities Piatra Neamţ and Târgu Neamţ, and subsequently focuses on the architecture of the church which brings a distinct note in the evolution of Moldavian architecture. The article provides an overview of the church painting, which was executed in the Byzantine style, in the fresco technique, by Mihai Chiuaru and his apprentices between 1988-1993 and was consecrated on the 4th of July 1993 by His Eminence Daniel, Metropolitan of Moldova and Bucovina. The characteristic trait of the pictorial ensemble at Horaiţa is the artist’s personal style with traces from the Romanian tradition of Byzantine origin. The final conclusions argue that this painting is genuine due to the refinement of its chromatic ensemble, compositional scheme, resolution, spontaneity of touch as well as the suppleness of the characters.

 

Keywords: Horaiţa Monastery, sacred art, fresco painting.
