Now that the firestorm of modernism, in both its communist and capitalist manifestations, has burned over the world, green shoots of tradition are rising from under their own ashes. Hoppál (ethnology, Hungarian Academy of Sciences) summarizes findings from his decades of research into traditions and mythology of the Uralic people concerning the past and present of shamanism. His topics include whether shamanism is a folk religion, cosmic symbolism in Siberian shamanhood, traces of shamanism in Hungarian folk beliefs, and shamanic narratives as intangible human cultural heritage.
