9780865164512: Tales from Slavic Myths

The world of Slavic myths is now accessible to English-language readers. These myths, now supplanted by Christian belief, are important to understanding the development of Slavic civilization and character. Slavic Myths is an incomparable general introduction to the topic. The book also features Professor Ondreicka's outstanding artwork, showcasing the high artistic culture of the Slovak Republic.

Slavic Myths presents careful re-tellings of essential Slavic mythology. No other title offers an introduction to Slavic mythology in such an accessible and charming form. The tales and the importance of comparative mythology in the study of history and culture are placed in context in an epilog supplied by Dr. Dusan Caplovic, Vice-President of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and a noted anthropologist. The book also includes a pantheon of Slavic gods and deities, bibliography, index, and a map of prehistoric Slavic sites.
