Abstract: The present study is an overview of students’ congresses organized in 1927 and 1928 by three organizations – the Y. M. C. A. (Young Men's Christian Association), the A. S. C. R. (the Christian Student Association, Romania) and the U. N. S. C. R. (Christian Students’ National Union of Romania); it is a period marked by growing tensions among members of the U. N. S. C. R., the radicalization of the relationships among young people from various Christian national student movements, who will gradually discover irreconcilable incompatibilities. The sources of documentation are national archives and the press of those times. Alexandru Teodorescu (alias Sandu Tudor), the central figure of this paper, also fits in the picture of a generation engaged in the chase to discover the eschatological dimension of their time. The fractures between the two organizations stemming from ideas (the differences between the Christian dogmas promoted by the Y. M. C. A and the orthodox church) and social context (a distinct response to radicalized student movements) are also reflected in the evolution of Sandu Tudor’s perception of the relationships among the A. S. A. C. R. U., the N. S. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A.
