• Subiect: The Semantics of the Nuptial Ceremonial (Sălaj County) The present issue proposes a semantics analyze of the nuptial ceremonial structured on the specific wedding ritual sequences characteristic for two different villages from Sălaj district (Buciumi and Meseşenii de Sus). We thought of a preliminary specification of the notions which appear in the tackled issue (ceremonial, ritual, custom) insisting on the socializing aspect of the custom. On the whole, the nuptial ceremonial has a series of ritual sequences having the same significance: passing, a mediator element in the wedding structure. The wedding, like the other customs of the life cycle, is considered "a serge moment". This sequences known in the dedicated literature as "ritual obstacles" remained the same for centuries in the villages we are talking about, being constituted in ceremonial's structure elements. Moments such as: committing, the linking of the bridges, the substitution of the bride, walking on the return way carries on a semantics affected by the desacralisation process specific to the entire religious life. The desacralisation process makes difficult the Feading of the symbol of the custom affecting the original significations. We do mention that the present study proposes working assumptions which can be subsisted to reasoned criticisms.
