The fourth issue of the Národopisná revue 1992 brings the final contributions to the survey focused on the importance of traditional and folk culture in our life (writers Antonín Přidal, Antonín Bajaja und Přemysl Rut, the musical editor Zdeněk Bláha and archeologist Jiří Pavelčík). The leading article is the study of Martina Pavlicová: Personalities of the history of the Czech ethnochoreography. The author investigates the ethnochoreo-graphic knowledge expressed in the works of significant representatives of the 19th Century Czech culture (Jan Jeník of Bratřice, Václav Krolmus, Josef Jaroslav Langer and Jan Neruda). She follows the scope of their interest in folk dance within the context of the period. By numerous quotations of their works she succeeds to exemplify the social atmosphere of those times.
The work of the important Czech ethnographer Jaromír Jech who died 1992 is the subject of the article by Marta Šrámková in pages 162-164.
Part of the fourth issue is again a photographic annex, this time by the Slovak photographer Ľubo Stach. He devotes a considerable part of his work to the documentation of the life in the Moravian region of Valachia.
Similarly to 1991, also the closing issue of Národopisná revue 1992 comprises the "credo" of our associates celebrating some sort of jubilee; they speak of their relation to scientific ethnography. These texts in pages 173-180 have a characteristic heading: Words as seed.
Reports and evaluations of folklore festivals in the Czech Republic and information of specific literature can be found in page 181-189. They are complemented by the annual report of the Institute of Folk Culture in Strážnice for 1992.
