Abstract

The godlike status of George Washington is part of American civil religion. The first President of the United States has contributed to organizing spaces of his country and the American holiday calendar. This function is for many revolutionary leaders because even political systems contain a religious element within them. This phenomenon, which belongs to popular culture, has not been exhausted over time but keeps on recurring with greater evidence in current monocratic and totalitarian rules.
