On 7 November 1939, it was God’s Will that the Church of Oltenia would return to its former organisational manner, that of Metropolitan Seat.  At its beginning, only 11 years had passed since the establishment of the Hungarian-Walachian Metropolitan Seat and in 1370, during the reign of Vlaicu (Vladislav Basarab), a second metropolitan seat was founded in Walachia, with the title of Metropolitan Seat of Severin”.
