dc.description.abstractThis analysis investigated the effects and implications of Hungary’s Communist legacy in the context of Hungarian socio-political landscapes during and after Communism. For this investigation, I relied upon Emile Durkheim’s Elementary Forms of Religious Life and Eric Voegelin’s The Political Religions to depict a collective mentality or collective consciousness derived from religion and politics and their impact on a societally shared understanding. The discussion further extended into an analysis of the manner in which Communist and post-Communist Hungarian governments utilise principles of political religions to serve as a structurally and culturally unifying force within society. Exploration of themes such as nationalism, ideology, and history have indeed revealed parallels between Communist and post-Communist governments which are becoming increasingly difficult to ignore, especially considering the effects of a Communist legacy on a contemporary mode of governance. Throughout the analysis I have utilised secondary data in applying classical theorists like Durkheim and Voegelin to characterisations of each political religion for a qualitative analysis.en
