Mosse (1975, p. 74) argues the public cults and festivities of modern nationalism were not so different from those of the Christian rites. 19 The role of the university and modernity is discussed in more detail in Delanty (1998, 2001a, 2002b, 2002e). 20 Diaz-Andreu and Champion (1996) offers a good overview of the impact of archaeology on national identity in Europe. See also Kohl and Fawcett (1995). 21 For example the debate over the preservation of the very significant Viking site in Woodquay in Dublin in the 1970s.
One of the paradoxes of nationalism is its combination of the new and the old. On the one side, it is obsessed with the new but, on the other, the birth of the new must be based on the old. This tension within nationalism has been the source of many violent conflicts. The meaning of the very idea of the nation is natio, or birth. Nationalist movements have often understood themselves to be seeking the rebirth of the nation, an act that is frequently connected with primordial violence. The religious and aesthetic connotations of birth and violence have remained with nationalism.
3 See Eisenstadt (1986, 1995b, 1998, 2000a). 4 We follow some points made by Johann Arnason, who criticizes Eisenstadt for ignoring the diversity of civilizational break-throughs (Arnason, 1997, pp. 61–71). However, Eisenstadt in his recent work has made a more explicit statement on the nature of multiple modernities, as in his book of that title, Die Vielfalt der Moderne (Eisenstadt, 2000b). See also Eisenstadt (1999a, 1999b) and Eisenstadt et al. (2000). 5 This has been argued by Roland Robertson.
