Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses a thesis that, as one of the strongest identity markers in Romania, the Christian tradition has great potential to offer a constructive answer to the contemporary dilemmas of multiculturalism. It first presents an overview of the data on the question of religion and ethnicity in post-communist Romania. This is followed by an assessment of the predominant trends involved in the building of the societal texture of Romanian contemporary society, with special emphasis on attitudes towards authority, otherness, and dialogue. Following a Foucauldian critique of the knowledge-power relationship predominant in the current state of affairs regarding traditions in Romania, the chapter argues for a reappraisal of the Christian tradition and its potential role.

Keywords: Christian tradition; ethnicity; multiculturalism; religion; Romania; Romanian contemporary society; strongest identity markers
