Beliefs and Superstitions of Szék (Sic), Transylvania. From the writings of Kocsis Rózsi, published by Juhos Kiss Sándor, Juhos-Kiss János. Kocsis Rózsi (born in Szék 1932, died 1999) began writing down memories of her life in her old age. This time we read about beliefs surrounding prayers before going to bed at night and getting up in the morning, Saint Bartholomew’s Day (the day when the Tartars invaded Szék) and what Rózsi imagined about the evil “dog-headed Tartars” as a little girl.
