Abstract: This article presents some of the results of a postdoctoral research conducted between 1 August and 30 September 2015 at the Vatican Radio. As a result of the research in the archive of the editorial office in Romanian, we found supporting documents, chronologically ordered, of the programs that were broadcast in 1969-1970. We have selected only the texts which, in their message, can create Romanian identity profiles (Eugen Ionescu, Vasile Pârvan, Sever Pop) in a virtual space - Vatican Radio, which outlined the ”linguistic personality” needed by the Romanian language department. All the fragments are well-designed journalistically specific to Vatican Radio requirements. These were aimed at transmitting information in the world of clear, pertinent messages about the notions of Romanian culture in a troubled period in Romania. In 1969-1971 the Romanian language department was presented by Father Ph.D. Flaviu Popan and Mircea Popescu, and by the end of the year, by Monsignor Ovidiu Bârlea, leading intellectuals of exile. The texts analyzed in this article, which gave rise to a lively interest, have as a thematic support the vast culture of Professor Mircea Popescu.
