The Communal Maanıfestatıon Of The Sacred: A Stuy On The Vısıt Of Tombs

Religious shrines are places where people who are believed to have spiritual power and who are known as “blessed persons” among the people are buried. These places are known as sacred places in terms of society and noteworthy with their religious architecture. Those who visit such places often go to the graves/shrines of people about whom they believe to have high in value in the sight of God for their problems they encounter in their lives, but they cannot overcome. These places where sacredness is formed in a spatial sense are also places where various wishes and hopes for future are expressed. Visits to the shrine are usually performed by prayer, perform salaat, sacrifice, putting cloth representing hope to the shrine, crying leaning against the shrine wall, taking land from the courtyard of the shrine, or taking a few nights in the shrine which are generally considered to be irreligious or superstitious rituals. In such religious rituals, pre-Islamic beliefs, known as “Folk religiosity,” have a great influence. Because, like many societies, Turks continued some of their religious beliefs before converted to Islam after they accepted Islam, and sometimes they synthesized these beliefs with Islamic practices and transformed them into a traditional form. In this context, it is possible to evaluate the visits to the shrine, which we see in traditional religious understanding. The purpose of this study is to examine the meaning of these shrine visits in terms of the public, reasons of the shrine visits, expectations of visitors and the religious rituals practiced during the visit.
