Abstract

The study analyses the circumstances that brought about the syncretic memorial place in an area of concrete-panel apartment buildings in Szeged, a city in the south of the Hungarian Great Plain, its symbolism, the characteristics of the mythology used in the course of its construction and its reception in the local culture. The investigation of the “vernacular memorial place” created by a bottom-up, grassroots movement throws light on the operation of the religious dimension of neonationalism, the origin of the new myths, as well as the characteristic complexity of ethnic paganism – at once neonationalist, pseudo-historical, seemingly Christian and neopagan – and its reception in the local culture.
