Summary/Abstract: The aim of this multidisciplinary research paper is to identify and create a unitary updated database of the almost 200 wooden churches from historical Bucovina (region that is currently divided between Romania and Ukraine). One can observe the abandonment of many wooden churches by the authorities, and the fact that they are currently under a real threat of disappearance. The project blends the synthesis of field and archive documentation research made in the last 20 years on the knowledge, historical evolution and status of these wooden monuments that represent the Romanian heritage from Bucovina. Based on the dendrochronological analyses, it was determined that the wooden church from Putna is one of the oldest in Europe. In the open-air museums from Suceava, Cernăuţi and Lvov several representative wooden churches are preserved.
