Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article analyzes the circumstances of the Tatar residence in Lithuania and the history of the Tatar community that is located in Raižiai settlement, the southern part of Lithuania. It is shown that although economic activity and lifestyle of Tatars contributed to rapprochement with Lithuanians, confessional factors led to differences in the ritual culture of the Tatars. The features of the religious life of Raižiai village Tatars, the ethno-cultural significance of the mosque and especially the cemeteries for the preservation of the community identity are discovered. The tendencies of modernization of society have led to changes in the ordering of cemeteries and burial places. The symbols of Islam remain on the monuments, but the influence of Lithuanian ritual traditions is also highly evident. Nevertheless, the paper concludes that the Raižiai village community remains an important religious and cultural center of the Lithuanian Tatars. [From the publication]
