Summary

This work introduces us into the study of the revitalising of certain symbolic and religious elements (concretely the Black-Eyed Saint Christ of Herrera, in Teruel), in rural communities through collective memory as a mechanism to recreate the sense of community identity in the direction laid out by the present. The informants, by means of their recollections and their rhetorics, rebuild their identity by reconstructing their memory in such a way as to not alter the symbols that are erected in the pillars of identity.
