2021-Year of Agarpicino (XXVIII): Don’t be ashamed to go out into the world…! – After the merger, Astra did not stop feeling the current needs! “Shouldn’t Astra turn into a medical institution?”

The history of the Astra Association can be discovered by reading the research paper «Transylvania Society of Romanian Literature and Culture of the Romanian People(ASTRA) and its role in national culture (1861-1950)» He appeared – in 1986 – in Cluj-Napoca. We recall that the paper – prepared by her the professor. Dr. Pamphil Matte (August 30, 1942, Alpak Municipality), PhD in Philology of the Faculty of Babeş-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca – is the most complete and valuable study of the association. In fact, the paper was the subject of his doctoral thesis, the leader was the literary historian Joseph Pervin, and the professor from Cluj was one of the most important researchers of the Transylvanian School. Professor Dr. Pamphil Mattei dedicated the study to the memory of his parents – Sophia and Ewan – as his reign was one of 17 children, all piercing their lives with their own strength. After an exceptional career (Professor at Georges Lazer National College, Professor and Director at the Octavian Goga National College, Director of the State Theater “Radu Stanca, Dean of the Faculty of Philology and History of Sibiu), Professor Dr. Pamphil Mattei Lee admitted that his wish was for younger generations to continue “the difficult path of developing this modest contribution towards a better knowledge and correct appreciation of an important page in the turbulent history of Transylvania”. In the “Preliminary considerations‘, Professor Pamphil Mattei provides the context of the institution; I recalled Aaron Florian’s fear: «In the Incorporation Act, Avram Ianko, Accent Sever, and Simon Balint entrusted J. act like Literary Society To be organized this waySo don’t be ashamed to go out with her to the world— As Aaron Florian wrote to J. Barreto, on April 21/3 May 1852, …».

As president of the Sibiu branch of the National Cultural Association „Avram Ayanko‘, confirmed by Prof. Dr. Pamphil Mattei – once again «The history of the “Assembly …” is known not only by significant achievements or clear and continuous progress (…) all obtained by private efforts, even sacrifices, by successive generations of scholars and other good people, united by a brilliant patriotic cause». The study builds on six other studies published by author Ion Agarbicino (see reference list): “Scientific Literary Sections of ASTRA” (1930), “On the Doorstep of the New Age” (1930), “ASTRA Collaboration with Other Cultural Societies” (1930), “Artistic Manifestations in Villages” (1939), “ASTRA and Revisionism” (1936) ), “The Commandments of the Day” (1939).

We continue to reproduce the study „The Transylvanian Society for the Literature and Culture of the Roman People – ASTRA * What was it? – What is it? – What does he want to be? The need from which Astra arose: «after the union‘Astra’ managed to get so many county organizations with so much activity that not all of its pre-union divisions were able to show the result that two or three county divisions gave today in a year’s time. after the unionastral“She contacted other Romanian cultural associations for the first time in her life, Retreat with all the pomp in BucharestAnd the Create unforgettable cultural and twinning Roman celebrations.
