In the folk religiosity which has a communal character, people who were organizing the religious events and life had a great importance. They often play a mediating role between the official and folk reiligiosity. One of these organising figures, István Orosz wrote his biography which is an excellent source to study the role and activity of such kind of people. This biography was published by Sándor Bálint in 1942 with an important study analizing these types of indivuals (holy men) in the religious life. Sometimes they were medicine-men in the community and priests at the same time. With bishopric licence, especially in the 17th-19th centuries they were leading the religious life of communities living without priests. In these situations they became preservers of a traditional religiosity, but at the same time renewers and revitalizers of it. These men were precantors, writers and publishers of religious songs, pilgrim leaders, organizers of pious societies, confraternities. They were experts of liturgy and century-old cultic practice. They were very self-conscious. The artical gives a short survay about the researches on the organizing figures of the Christian folk religiosity in Hungary since the 1940s.
