The case of metropolitan Visarion Puiu, the only bishop of the Romanian Orthodox Church who remained exiled after the Romanian territory was occupied by the Soviet troops in August 1944 and who was condemned to death in February 1946 and defrocked by the Holy Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church in 1950, is still one of the most controversial topics of the recent Romanian church historiography. Having been studied fragmentarily and very few times thoroughly researched, his writings not edited or read according to his true contribution to the Romanian contemporary Theology, Visarion Puiu still represents a long debatable, yet little known figure.
