Mitske predaje i legende južnovelebitskog Podgorja
Mythical Traditions and Legends from Podgorje in Southern Velebit

Mirjana Trošelj



During her extensive field research, which has been taking place since 1977, of mirila (unusual stone monuments) in the southern part of Velebit, Croatia, the author also made notes on the oral tradition and legends of the local population in south Podgorje (the Morlaki). This paper contains mythical, historic, and etiological lore and legends; two mythical songs; and a text on the belief in the magic symbolism of the circle. These previously unpublished texts are presented in the original dialect of south Podgorje.
