Cultural Practices in Sacralisation of Place: Vows in the Shrine of Our Lady of Marija Bistrica / Belaj, Marijana ; Hrovatin Mirela. - 343-351 str.

A general insight into cultural-anthropological perspective on the processes of sacralisation of pilgrimage sites we shall concretize through the results of research of vow (ex voto) practices, as non-institutional personal religiosity, in the shrine of Our Lady of Marija Bistrica. In terms of content and performance, vow practices offer insights into the dynamics of the pilgrim’s understanding of the sacred place. They can also reveal and point to particular historical, religious and sociocultural events and processes, which remain permanently inscribed into the sacred place once the vows have been concretized.
