Abstract

In the decades since the change of political system, religious culture in Hungary has undergone substantial transformation, mainly due to the fact that the way has been opened for ideological pluralism. However, not only have new religious phenomena appeared as a consequence, there has also been considerable change in the vernacular religiosity of large numbers. All these changes can be clearly observed in the forms of new religious spaces, their symbols and rites. The aim of the present study is to analyse the changes in religious culture and the motivations behind them through the example of two new places of pilgrimage. Keywords: vernacular religiosity, pilgrimage, bricolage religiosity
