Description
Summary:Proskynetarions, which can be inventable in Hungary, were brought by the orthodox macedo-vlachians, who lived in ethnical and religious minority, from Jerusalem in the 18th century. Returning into Hungarian Kingdom macedo-vlachians had used these objects as devotional objects. The pictures of proskynetarions depicted Biblical locations, Bible histories, legends of the Holy Land which manifestate the reliving space and time of the devotional home-relations for pilgrims, by the material illustrations of Jerusalem. These objects althougth illustrate the earthly, but simbolize the desiredheavenly Jerusalem. These devotional proskynetarions for the orthodox pilgrims in Hungary, not only aided the confirmation of faith in God, but also -living in minority- utilized for the pledge of the recruitment of faith, the ethnical self-preservation and the survival of minority.
