LIFE IN LINE WITH THE CUSTOMS AND FAITH. A LIFE CYCLE OF NORTH SUDANESE PEASANT - CHILDHOOD AND ADOLESCENCE
Languages of publication
The article addresses the life cycle of a contemporary north Sudanese peasant. The author, based on his own experience and interviews, describes the achievements of the local folklore, showing it against the background of the most important events in human life, such as birth and circumcision. The article provides a description and explanation of basic rituals and beliefs of the inhabitants of the Central Nile Valley, both in the broader context of culture and religion of the Muslim world and in the narrow context of Sudan. The author does not restrict himself to the sphere of rituals; he provides insight into the processes of upbringing. The article also describes the changes taking place in the cultural reality of northern Sudan, which is under the influence of extreme Islamic ideology and the processes of westernization or globalization. As the problems addressed in the article are very extensive, the author has focused on childhood and adolescence.
