Short history:

After the Union from 1700, there appeared the first greek-catholic communities in the Banat area. Their number increased significantly between 1831-1851, thus the need of founding an Eparchy in that area was strongly motivated. Under these circumstances, there was issued the Apostolicum Ministerium, on November 26, 1853, by which both the Eparchy of Lugoj and that of Gherla (which was to become lately the Eparchy of Cluj-Gherla) were founded.
