Rites of passage in the Roma communities from the Prahova district – research study

“The rites of passage help the individual prepare for the newly acquired social status. (…) The rites of passage are irrelevant without the particularities of the social context, as well as the involvement of the community. The ceremonials contribute to the defining of the individual (…) throughout the passing through 3 most important moments: the baptism, the wedding and the funeral.”
