Romanian Childbirth Beliefs in the Midst of the City

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, IX (2), p. 133-150
Publisher:Institutul de Filologie Română „A. Philippide”
Abstract:The article uses ethnographic methods and sociological data to explain the particular case of the Romanian society, which proves itself to be mainly rural. When people started coming from villages to live in the communist towns, they brought along their traditional worldview, too. Childbirth beliefs are used to demonstrate this cultural retention since this segment of the passage rites is less exposed to innovation than weddings or funeral ceremonies.
Key words:urban anthropology, rural society, traditional beliefs, childbirth customs, superstitions
