The information on the Romanian folkloric tradition recorded by Anton-Maria Del Chiaro in the work Revoluțiile Valahiei contributes to the familiarisation with the manner in which the members of the community from Wallachia, in the Middle Age, were giving signification for their existence and experience.
Although, in the areal investigated by the foreign traveller, the challenges of the modernity determine obvious functional mutations in the system of beliefs and practices related to the major events of the biblical history, the disappearance of the traditional information is not an object. Even if the mentality on life has changed, the customs are practiced continuously and answer to the contemporary cultural and social needs.
