RITUALISTIC AND DAILY MEALS. ELEMENTS OF ROMANIAN CULTURAL IDENTITY


Posted On Jan 15 2019 by

The Romanian heritage is very rich in traditions, rituals and superstitions associated with meals, most of them unknown to a large segment of the population nowadays. The aim of our paper is to reveal the ritualistic values of meals associated with some Romanian celebrations (Easter) and of everyday meals as a statement of the vast national intangible heritage. Our broader aim is to promote aspects of Romanian cultural life from the visible and invisible Romanian cultural heritage at a national and international level. This paper aims to respond to the cultural need of asserting cultural identity by rediscovering Romanian food-related practices and meanings as elements of cultural identity. The research methodology combines methods of cultural and ethnographic studies: literature review and field survey.
