Abstract

The mysterious Brumalia is an ancient festival that lived its heyday in the Byzantine age. It contained 24 days of profane feasts, but a few Christian authorities regarded it as a pagan rite; nevertheless it survived until the 10th century. Its name is connected with the bruma, the shortest day or period of the year, but Brumalia was observed in November and lasted 24 days until the old date of Saturnalia. It is very probable that this "pagan" festival got its final form only in the Christian era and its goal was to create a "political correct" alternative in the period of religious transition in order to replace the old holidays of Saturnalia.
