    In post-Trianon Hungarian irredentist imagery, the use of the Christian symbolism of crucifixion is hardly exceptional and is common to self-pitying nationalist imagery in much of the Christian world. However, Hungary's unique historical development left irredentist image creators unable to use the crucifixion of a male figure. Nevertheless, although restricted to gender-neutral or female representations, Hungarian nationalists were compelled to evoke the Passion of Christ, while also stressing the Mary-like nature of the country. As the paper shows, they created a powerful, if blasphemous set of images placing the motherland in the role of Christ. This continues to be evoked in Hungarian nationalist discourse today.
