  Abstract:  The Ethnographic Image of the Transylvanian Romanians in the 19th Century. The present article is divided into two parts: the first focuses on folklore and customs, while the second on traditions in Transylvania. The sources for the research are ethnographic works, but I laid special emphasis on articles published in the main gazettes of the time. Authors usually approach this topic not only from the perspective of personal experience or memory, but also from a scientific perspective, based on thorough research. One can find detailed descriptions of customs accompanying Christian and non-Christian holidays, as well as fascinating data on the folklore, music and dances of Transylvanian Romanians. As for the nineteenth-century Transylvanian society, customs and traditions can be viewed as primary among the modalities of identity reconstruction.

Keywords: ethnography, national image, national identity, Transylvania, Modern Epoch
