In the Wake of Vilmos Diószegi: Collecting Folk Belief and Religious Folklore in Northern Mongolia

Descriptive Text: 

 Mongolian and Turkic shamanism has long drawn scholarly interest. Between 1957 and 1964 the Hungarian ethnologist, Vilmos Diószegi, visited several Turkic and Mongolic peoples in Southern Siberia and Northern Mongolia. Unfortunately due to his early death he only published a few items from his materials. I am preparing his precious manuscript legacy for publication.
