KONOPÁSEK, Z. (2022): Religion in action: How Marian apparitions may become true. HAU: Journal of Ethnographic Theory, 12 (1): 170–183::::
According to Latour, religion and science have nothing in common. The two are successful (or failing) in quite different ways. Religiousness is not aimed at fact-making, but at presence-making, he says. To critically reconsider these ideas, I discuss the case study of Marian apparitions in Litmanová. The study suggests a more complicated picture by not focusing on pure and ready-made religion, but rather on religion in the making, a kind of “almost-religion.” It shows how the reality of apparitions, initially of quite unclear status, was becoming more and more religious. Fact-making and fact-checking clearly belonged to this trajectory and have never stopped being relevant. Nonethless, together with how the apparition was progressively becoming truly religious (or religiously true), Latourian presence-making was gaining in importance.

The mission of protected landscape areas (PLA) is not only to protect nature, but also to preserve the values of the landscape. Landscape is affected, among others, by the appearance of settlements. It is therefore a matter of regulating the construction and development of municipalities in such a way that local historical and cultural habits are respected. In short, the landscape should keep the local feel, which is comfortable for both residents and visitors. The question remains how to serve this public interest most effectively and at the same time so that the regulation is seen as a welcome service of the state. The article marks the first phase of an applied research project in which we, a team of sociologists, urban planners, architects and conservationists, are interested in "how decision-making is made," i.e., the trajectory from prescription to application in practice, and how to improve the status quo.
