Without pretending to bring solutions, the present article tries to identify the main talking points of the relation between state, society and religion, assuming the hypothesis that recognizes the unique character of the Romanian history beginning with the 19th century. Moreover, the orientation of the work towards a broader context of scientific analysis allows the possibility of the avoidance of a political, historical and not least religious determinism focused on the years 1945 and 1989: the end of the Second World War and the collapse of the communist regime. In this situation, the article allows for a detailed exposition of the Romanian and foreign literature of the main events in history of Orthodox, Greek-Catholic Church and Catholic Church that marked the dynamics of the modern and contemporary Romania. As to the structural dimension of the religious and political system, most of the analysis converge towards the acceptance of the following components: the situation of the Greek-Catholic Church in Transylvania, the religious freedoms and legislative invariables of the interreligious dialogue in Romania, the transformations of the European spiritual environment thorough a parallel between the religious practices at the beginning of the 20th and 21st centuries.
