This master thesis presents demonstrates an overview of the occurrence, development, structure and organization of the Federation of Damanhur – defined as an ecological community, a new age community or a cult – as well as the life and the role of its’ founder Falco. The thesis is based on content analysis of available materials about the Federation and research studies, and on materials collected by semi-structured interviews with members who hold different roles in the citizen hierarchy of the Federation of Damanhur. A discrepancy was determined between the normative, as defined by official sources of the Federation and certain research studies, and the performed of which the informants testify (former and present members of the Federation). On account of that discrepancy it was concluded in which direction the Federation is going after Falcos’ death and new research questions have arisen.
