Entstehende Landschaft, Wechselnde Gesellschaft und Kultur

Zur Ethnographie des Bodrogköz (Nordostungarn) im 19.–20. Jahrhundert

Author: Gyula Viga

Changing countryside, society and culture. Contribution to the ethnology of the Bodrogköz region of NE Hungary in the 19th–20th centuries . Bodrogköz is a historical region comprising some fifty settlements divided by the redrawing of the borders after the First World War: the northern part is now in the territory of Slovakia and the southern part in Hungary. The appearance of the countryside bordered by the Tisza, Bodrog and Latorca rivers was substantially changed by the deforestation and later, between 1845 and 1890, by the regulation of the rivers and flood control measures. The essay examines how the transformation of the landscape influenced the historical processes of peasant farming, the society and culture. Under its influence the earlier difference between the flood plains and the flood-free levels ceased to exist and there was a considerable overall increase in the proportion of ploughland. However, there was a marked decline in the area of grazing land that had provided the fodder for the earlier extensive livestock farming. With considerable differences between villages, the structure of peasant farms shifted towards keeping cattle in barns and in agriculture the role of fodder production greatly increased. The changes percolated through peasant society very slowly: a substantial part of the population continued to farm on infertile land. Many people sought prosperity in America and used the money earned there to buy land in their Bodrogköz settlements. The hierarchy of settlements in the region was also greatly altered by the transformation of the countryside. However, the region as a whole remained disadvantaged and the development of its society is still contradictory even today.

Traditonal Stone Techniques - Stone Culture - Research on stone work and its products is sharply divided into the ethnological approach, into archaic techniques and the archaeological and art historical study of the products. In this study the author draws attention to the common features of the problem, drawing most of his examples from villages in the southern foothills of the Bükk Mountains. He points out that in this region of volcanic tuff, stone quarrying and stone carving were among the basic skills that could be put to good use. Most of the work, even work requiring considerable skill, on the construction and stone carving projects of the late 18th century in the Baroque town of Eger (Heves County, Northern Hungary) was done by peasant stone carvers of the region under the direction of specialists. The author also draws attention to the difficulties of dating structures carved in rock and stone carvings.

The study sums up the ethnographical achievements of Hiador Sztripszky (1876-1945), a now little-known Hungarian-Ruthenian ethnographer, bibliographer, linguist, literary historian and translator. The researcher, who had a thorough knowledge of the cultural history and ethnography/folkloristics of the Hungarians and the peoples living together with them, in particular of the Ruthenians and Romanians, did a great deal to study and make known the ethnocultural processes and influences. He also played a big role in collecting the material cultural heritage of the peoples of Transylvania for museums. After the Versailles Peace Treaty he was sent into early retirement as having been involved in the policy on the minorities, and in the last 25 years of his life he achieved substantial results mainly as a philologist in the study of the history and connections of the different ethnic groups and denominations. In addition to Sztripszky's work in ethnography, the study also discusses areas related to the latter problem.
