The Orthodox Church and the adjecent school were the main intellectual and cultural support of the Romanians. It had an influence an all teritories inhabited by Romanians. Especially deacon Coresi's work, who printed the first ecclesiastical books in Romanian.
The monarchs of the time also played a major role in adonrning and expanding the church, by offering money, gold and silver objects, ikons, and ceremonial objects. Even the Russian empress, Elisabeta Petrovna, donated to the church. The XVIII century restoration works highly affected the original Gothic look of the church giving a Baroque style to the building.
