Baráth Tibornak 1972. október 23-án, Montreálban keltezett összefoglalóját arról, hogy Mi a magyar? olvasóink kérésére német és angol nyelvre is lefordíttattuk. A német fordítás után most közzétesszük az angol változatot, Botos Margaret fordításában.
What is Hungarian? – Tibor Baráth's Summary
The Hungarians are a people that has survived in some enigmatic way, who have preserved the language of an important civilization that existed before the Greco-Roman civilization, in some smaller measure its culture and in even smaller measure – through the organic nature of the civilization, the mythology and the archaic folk-tales – its body of beliefs. The Hungarian people is an ancient people, whose history is presently officially acknowledged by historians to go back only over the past thousand years, although its civilization-creating and state-founding strength is surely documented in five continents: Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America. This is a quotation from the New Definition of the Hungarian Nation, accepted by the 8th Hungarian World Congress. Below, we present the viewpoint of Tibor Baráth, who is perhaps the most inspired Hungarian historian of the 20th century on the question of "What is Hungarian?", as he sums it up at the end of his three-volume opus, published in Montreal: A magyar népek őstörténete (The Ancient History of the Hungarian Peoples). In 2012, the World Federation of Hungarians distinguished Tibor Baráth, posthumously, with its highest honor, the GOLD MEDAL FOR SERVICE TO THE HUNGARIAN NATION. The text of his main work can be found on the website of the Magyarságtudományi Intézet (Institute for Hungarian Studies), based in the United States (I. II. III.)
Summary of the results
In the course of the examination of our ancient history, we searched for the answers to the following questions: 1. To which race of people do we Hungarians belong? 2. How ancient is our language and our culture? 3. Where was the ancient homeland of our people, or to the extent of our knowledge the most ancient place of settlement, where the people organized themselves into a society? 4. What was our role in the establishment of human culture in the ancient homeland? 5. When and by what routes did parts of our people migrate from the Ancient Homeland to Europe, particularly to the Danube-Basin? 6. What role did the European branch of the Magyars play in the establishment of Europe, and what was the fate of the European branch at the end of the ancient historical era? Using the most recent methods of studying history and, for the most part using new sources, we have formulated the answers to these questions in the following way:
1. We, who make up the Magyar people, are a race of people existing from the dawn of history, the legendary Aryans, in other words the descendants of the people of Ur. Our existence as Aryans is contained in our name: Hung-Ári, Mag-Ári and in the name of our state: Hung-Ária, Mag-Ária which have been preserved to this day and, even today, we speak the original Aryan language. Our customs, ethnography and body of beliefs, for the most part are an unparalleled legacy originating in ancient times. Our people have a Turanian branch also, which originated from the Kush race that joined with us when we lived in the tropics, who were called Black Magyars at that time, on account of the dark complexion of their faces. We have no ties to the Turkish or Mongol races.
2. The elevated level of our spoken and agricultural culture can be proven in writing going back five to six thousand years; in other words, its beginnings date back to such ancient times, when no other human speech, organized religion, culture or writing existed, other than the Magyar. Therefore, our ancestors had nobody from whom they could „borrow". Their vocabulary, religious concepts and knowledge were created from the beginning to the end from their own inspiration. Therefore, the Hungarian language is an ancient language, the Hungarian culture is an ancient culture, which is shared today by our living relatives the Estonians, Finns and other peoples of Magyar origin.
3. The organization of our Aryan race, or the division into nations and the development of many high-level cultures can be seen principally in that geographical area, where three continents – Asia, Africa and Europe – come together, which is called the Ancient Orient or the Near East. According to today's knowledge, this was our „ancient home".
4. The Magyar-speaking people of Ur, in their eastern homeland established the basic human inventions, the regular cultivation of crops, pottery-making and the iron industry. They invented the first means of travel (boats, carts), formulated the concept of the existence of God and invented the means of transmitting thoughts independently of time: writing, with its rules adapted to our language. Among our ancestors' inventions of world-wide importance, the latter – writing – was the most influential, because with it science was born: the accumulated knowledge was then able to be classified and stored, passed on from generation to generation and augmented. The vocabulary, concepts, religion and knowledge of writing of the Magyar peoples was not kept in secret but missionaries, the Sun-priests, spread it to all parts of the world. Thus, the Magyar-speaking peoples (which were formerly called Finno-Ugric peoples) were the first teachers, educators and organizers, which is evidenced by the huge volume of Hungarian words that can be found in large numbers in every later-established language, even today.
5. Beginning in the fourth millennium BC, groups of Magyar peoples migrated in consecutive waves to the larger regions of Europe: South, West, Eastern and Central Europe. The first groups of Magyar peoples arrived in the territory of Historical Hungary in the New Stone Age and the Bronze Age from a southern direction, across the Balkan Peninsula. Later waves arrived from an eastern direction from about 500 BC, through the passes in the Carpathian Mountains. The incoming peoples organized their societies in the Danube Basin, according to their place of origin, time of arrival, or their religion, with their own princes to rule them. These Magyar homelands in the Danube region were taken over first by King Attila, the Lord of Esthon, and later by his blood-descendant, Prince Árpád, and organized into a unified state. With the establishment of this state, the ancient history of the Magyars came to a close.
6. The Magyar-speaking groups of people, under different names: Magurs(Lords of the Core), Szemurs(Lords of the Eye), Ancient people of Ur, Ligurs, Baráts, Iberians, Estonians, Finns, Kelets, Hetes, Szeréms and many other names, settled in Europe and played an important role, as the ancient peoples did all across the world: they became the discoverers of the continent, the founders of Europe-I, the first settled inhabitants of this area, the ancient Europeans. Fate determined that, from that huge cultural civilization, as a result of the advance of the Sarmatians, the emergence and political role of the Romans, Germans and Slavs, today only a small part remains, the present-day Hungarians. Our responsibility and our mission is therefore enormous: we are the only official heirs of that huge eastern legacy, the only official interpreters of the ancient world. Without our language – as this present work proves – the first era of humanity would have remained forever in obscurity.
