Mass Media of Arad.

The release of German language weekly newspaper "Arader Kundschaftsblatt" marked the beginning of journalism in Arad, in 1837. Three years later, it was followed by its Hungarian version "Aradi Hirdeto". The first periodically publication printed at Arad in Romanian was "Speranta" - "Hope". "Church literary review. Reading Association of the Romanian Theologues from Arad" which was edited with the Preparandia and Arad Institute Theology support. The review gained enthusiast appreciation from one of the great Romanian poets, Mihai Eminescu (1850-1889). Published bimonthly between February 1st - December 15th, 1869 and January 10th - June 13th, 1872 "Speranta" was considered "the first and only Romanian orthodox review in Hungary and Transylvania". Since then until nowadays more than 150 publications with religious, political, literary, artistically-cultural, economical, legal, didactic-pedagogical and daily information content were issued at Arad in Romanian, Hungarian and German languages. Their contribution to the social and spiritual development of the city was fundamental.
