ABSTRACT: Beatification of the seven Greek Catholic Bishops of Romania: the specifics of the case and the methodology for Positio super martyrio. The cause of the beatification of the seven Greek Catholic bishops and the two-volume drafting of the Positio super martyrium, which demonstrated their free and voluntary acceptance of martyrdom by them, had some specific aspects that required the an appropriate methodology for organizing archival documents. (Summarium Documentorum), oral testimonies (Summarium Testium) and writing the text, so that the Congregation for the Causes of Saints can aquire a moral certainty about their devotion to the Catholic faith and acceptance of persecution in the Christian hope of victory in Christ. The specific aspects of the case are given by the fact that the persecution against the Greek Catholic bishops is included in the hatred of the faith (odium fidei) manifested as a project of suppresion of the Greek Catholic Church as a whole, and the Way of the Cross the whole church went through includes personal martyrdom of the seven bishops, which imposed its own methodology for Positio so that the singular martyrdom path is inserted in the general context of the persecution of the Church.

Keywords: cause of beatification of Greek Catholic bishops, specific aspects of the cause, Positio, argumentation of martyrdom, persecution of the church, methodology for Positio, archives.
