It demonstrates aspects of tradition promoting the particularity of our cultural inheritance and the significance of its preservation. Knowledge of our tradition leads to knowledge of our origins, informing us of our roots and contributing to our self awareness. Through tradition we discover the past and define the present. As a result, this process demonstrates beyond doubt their unbreakable unity. Tradition as memory teaches us by encouraging; instigating or dissuading; enhancing a feeling of collectiveness; constituting a source of artistic inspiration; and promoting moral values.
