Abstract: Sandu Tudor's activity as a member of the Association of Romanian Christian Students, his involvement in the academic environment of the period, respectively in the various student movements, has been a less researched topic. Historiography so far has offered only few milestones which are rather empirical and factual; a circumstantial interpretation would configure a clear dimension of what was, from this perspective, Sandu Tudor: an influence factor that moved the Orthodox Christian message from the sphere of symbolic communication to the public space. The objective of the paper is to bring to the public space conclusive evidence of Sandu Tudor's involvement in the events and debates related to the Romanian Orthodox Church in the first interwar decade. A large part of the research lies in the discovery of evidence relevant to understanding the events of the above-mentioned period; documents from the secret police’s archives were collected and selected and then, as their acuity cannot be taken for granted, corroborated with other types of sources - from specialized works on interwar Romania to confessional literature. The material was shaped and reshaped critically until the personality of Sandu Tudor emerged free from myths and prejudices. The present study aims to add another piece to the puzzle posed by the mystery of the personality of Sandu Tudor, and also to complete and colour the picture of Great Romania in the first decade of the interwar period.
