DOBRUDJA (Bulgarian Dobritch, Rumanian Dobrogea), also written Dobrudscha, and Dobruja, a region of south-eastern Europe, bounded on the north and west by the Danube, on the east by the Black Sea, and on the south by Bulgaria.
By the treaty of Berlin, in 1878, the Russians rewarded their Rumanian allies with this land of mountains, fens and barren steppes, peopled by Turks, Bulgarians, Tatars, Jews and other aliens; while, to add to the indignation of Rumania, they annexed instead the fertile country of Bessarabia, largely inhabited by Rumans.
Af ter 1880, however, the steady decrease of aliens, and the development of the Black Sea ports, rendered the Dobrudja a source of prosperity to Rumania.

However, none of these circles finalized the debates in a concrete result that could give a reason to the Dobrudjans to consider that their approaches submitted to the higher levels of the State (The Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church, the Presidency, the Government) were taken into consideration.
Dobrudja was also well known even in the Western Roman Empire, due to the contribution of certain remarkable theologians (Saint John Casian, Saint Gherman, and Dionysus the Exiguous), who provided the western Christianity with rules of monastic organization, morals treaties, and last but not least the calculation of the Christian Era.

Situated in the north-eastern extremity of the Balkan Peninsula, the province of Dobrudja functioned during the Middle Ages as a frontier zone at the borderland of the Ottoman Empire, and as one of the most advanced Muslim military bastions in South-Eastern Europe.
In the ensuing period, Dobrudja became the object of an acute Romanian-Bulgarian territorial conflict: both states engaged in assiduous and competing processes of national expansion and border making in the province.
The integration of the province into Romania followed nevertheless the model of internal colonialism: Dobrudja exhibited a specific case of „the development of the underdevelopment:” its economic structure being tailored almost exclusively as an appendage of metropolitan needs, at the neglect of local patterns of economic development.
