The fluid nature of the past/present relationship was chosen as a common research project by the team of experts of the Culture, Arts and Humanities Task Force of the Coimbra Group. A further specification regarding the role of tradition in a changing world was added and thus was identified the core topic of a conference, held in Galway (2004), where a multidisciplinary team met to share concerns and outline research methods. This book has emerged from that occasion of interdisciplinary dialogue: philosophy, history, performing arts, literature, religion, education, linguistics, folklore and European ethnology, meet here to offer a wide range of scholarly interests and map some of the ways in which it is possible to engage with the frontier between past and present. Three basic modalities - renegotiation, continuity, herit-age management - are here proposed as pivotal headings for sixteen papers, which take into account distinct facets of a perennial question with a fundamental bearing on European identity.
