Sacralization of History: Actors – Networks – Topics in (contemporary) Eastern Europe

Public History, Political History / Studies, Nationalism History / Studies, Oral History, Eastern Europe History / Studies

Historical memory is playing a central role, especially in Eastern European, in shaping national identities and legitimizing claims to leadership. Remarkably, history is currently not simply politized but history is also being sacralized. Historical evidence, myths and stereotypes are declared “authentic” and therefore beyond doubt or criticism. Secular and sacral rituals, venerated objects and marked spaces are used to strengthen feelings of national identity and belonging. Religious authorities and churches are often involved in the sacralization of historical politics.
