The Proto-Diplomatic Document in Romania

Abstract

The theme is decoding the “literary field of the Romanian proto-diplomatic document”, designed to replace the art of diplomacy and cultural regeneration. It is the observation field over the products of literature’s habitat, the “art of the word”. Therefore, to confirm the “Romanian tradition”, we have analysed several of the “literary works” of some Romanian writers from the 19th Century. Under these circumstances, attention is drawn on the role of the document/deed, on its importance in the universe of cultures. Attention is drawn on the occurrence of proto-religious documents and of the proto-diplomatic documents. During the evolution of scripts in the mid 17th Century – presented by Nicolae Iorga as “abandonment of the Franciscan spirit, a change of the entire meaning of the religious literature”, we have included in the study the role of Slavic monks (refugees from Mount Athos on our lands) and their apprenticeship in the atmosphere of “mysticism and culture”, the impact caused by founders of monasteries, turned genuine centres of culture. Within these monastic places, the art of calligraphy and miniature develops, revived under Matei Basarab, Vasile Lupu and especially during the reign of Constantin Brâncoveanu.

Experimental Investigation of a Centrifugal Pump Hydraulic Performance in Hydraulic Transmission of Solids

1 Introduction The human need for water and moving it from another point caused the man to fall idea to build a device that resolves this problem. The first examples of pumps in which driving force was supplied by humans or animals were made and used by the ancient Egyptians in the 17th century BC. They were able to pull water with reciprocating pumps from the earth at a depth of 91.5 m. Pump refers to a device that gives energy to the fluid and transfers it from one point to another.
