It is well known that the Romanian Orthodox Church has been always involved in the problems of the community. An important role belongs to the religious ceremony during the nat ional holidays, a succesfull framework that brought together notables and citizens.
In this study I tried to offer a research perspective on how was constructed a festive community framework in Craiova around the most important moments of the birth of the modern Romania such as: January 24, 1859 (the Romanian Principalities Unification) and May 10 (Carol I’ entrance and the Independence Day).
