主讲内容:

Albeit newcomers in Europe, Hungarians must have felt necessary to use Classical Antiquity for identity constructions. Attila, the Hun, and the imaginary Hun ancestry of the Hungarians was a useful means through which they could attach their history to the Ancient times. However, the anti-Roman, Asian, barbaric ancestry is not the only one Hungarians adopted through the centuries, since they also regarded themselves as spiritual descendants of the classical antiquity, and therefore many Hungarians regarded the classics, and especially the textual heritage in Latin, as part of the national culture. The debates about ancestry, the origin of Hungarian language, as well as the nation’s position according to the East-West divide have recently reappeared on the level of governmental policy after the apparent consensus of the 20th century. The questions of national identity were seldom independent from imperial projects. In times of defensive wars against the Ottoman Empire the western, Christian aspects (including the classical heritage) were strongly emphasized, while in periods of Hungarian expansion, as well as in those of resistance towards the Habsburgs, the focus tended to be on the warrior-like, conquering, Asiatic aspects.
