Summary/Abstract: Recent biographical notes of a mature historian, as well as some of the inherited memories from the older, deceased, prestigious authors – such as acad. David Prodan -, together with a variety of articles make possible the first evaluations of the last decade of historiography in communist in the capital city of Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca. This paper focuses on the professional atmosphere in the field of history in the last years of the 80es, put under the pressure of the ideological censorship of the Communist Party, but also under the will of acad. Ştefan Pascu, leader of several institutions (the historical section of the Romanian Academy, the Institute of History from Cluj and so on), author of a number of various books, monographs and special studies… Was, at the time, any medieval history school of Cluj or not? Had Ştefan Pascu a good or a bad influence on his disciples? These are some of the questions explored in those pages.
