Flattery is prepayment of the betrayal that will be prepared for you

Nicolae Iorga

January 17, 1871 – November 27, 1940

Nicolae Iorga was a scholar and statesman, Romania’s greatest national historian, literary critic, memoirist, poet and playwright. He served as a member of Parliament, President of the Deputies’ Assembly and Senate, cabinet minister and briefly as Prime Minister.

A child prodigy, polymath and polyglot, Iorga produced an unusually large body of scholarly works, consecrating his international reputation as a medievalist, Byzantinist, Latinist, Slavist, art historian and philosopher of history. Holding teaching positions at the University of Bucharest, the University of Paris and several other academic institutions, Iorga was founder of the International Congress of Byzantine Studies and the Institute of South-East European Studies (ISSEE).

A man of enormous energy, he is believed to have written more than 1,000 books and some 25,000 articles. He published a monumental 10-volume national history, Istoria Românilor (1936–39). His strongly nationalist writings and lectures influenced all of Romanian intellectual life. Iorga founded a people’s university at Vălenii de Munte (1908).
