Slovakia - European Contexts of the Folk Culture

Slovensko - Europske kontexty ludovej kultury - Cover Page

The team of authors of this work dealt with interpretations of results of the latest ethnological research from the perspective of European cultural history. From the outset, preparing a new synthesizing work on folk culture, as part of the Slovak cultural identity, was the focus.

Results of the ethnologists, folklorists and musicologists who prepared this publication document that impetuses of creation, stability and disintegration of traditions are conditioned by various factors and contexts, which largely provide the framework of folk culture and have broader relations. It is evident that cultural traditions that were created here over centuries can be likened to what was taking place throughout central Europe - strongly determined by plurality. The cultural memory of people in Slovakia was created by a multiplicity of ethnical, language and cultural factors, which also mirrored in the unprecedented colorfulness of forms, types and alternatives of folk culture.
