Abstract

The paper deals with an attempt to explicate the recitatation of rosary as the ethnoreligious marker of the actional significative subsystem of Catholic significative field in the context of the study of interaction and correlation of the structural elements of various ethnoreligious spaces and systems in the ethnosociology of religion using some socioevaluational instrumentative methodotechnologies. A part of the modern scientific and information resources related to visual culture, religious rites and dogmas of Catholicism is analyzed, as well as some similarities between certain significants of the actional attributes of Catholics and some identificative markers­patterns of different ethnoreligious communities of the past and modern sociospace are explicated. The ethnoreligious links and interrelations between some structural elements of Catholic significative field and some ethnoreligious markers of Hinduistic, Buddhistic, Islamic etc. ethnicities are slightly explicated. The socioevaluative, autointentional, identificative attempts to explicate some ethnoreligious crosscorrelations between different significative structural fields in sociospace are based on the author’s Model of the structure of significative field of Catholicism, which consists of the following 12 basic significative structural subsystems: 1) anthropomorphic significative subsystem, which includes human­similar (manlike) and personificated symbolic constructions, monuments and architectural ensembles, as well as symbols of human body parts, their combinations and signals; 2) zoomorphic significative subsystem, which includes animal­similar significative constructions and signs of their separate bodyparts, as well as symbols of their lifeproducts; 3) vegetomorphic significative subsystem, which includes plant­similar significative elements and food products; 4) geomorphic significative subsystem; 5) geometric significative subsystem; 6) astral­referent significative subsystem; 7) coloristic significative subsystem; 8) topos­instalative significative subsystem; 9) objective­instrumental significative subsystem; 10) architectural exterior­interior significative subsystem; 11) abstractive significative subsystem; 12) actional significative subsystem.
