Folk Storytelling between Fiction and Tradition: The “Walled-Up Wife” and Other Construction Legends<br>Ljudsko pripovedništvo med fikcijo in tradicijo: “Zazidana žena” in druge zgodbe o gradnji</br>
AbstractDiscussed are folktales and songs about the building of important constructions, which include the motifs of human or animal sacrifice or the immuration of other objects, as well as the narratives in which the master mason is a supernatural being. The origins of these stories were interwoven into the myths and different beliefs and cosmogonic presumptions and were at the time of their formation considered to be credible, but in the process of spreading them around they lost their plausibility.
