Aśvamedha - A Vedic Horse Sacrifice<br>Aśvamedha - vedsko žrtvovanje konja</br>
AbstractThe article investigates the ancient Vedic ritual of horse immolation, known as Aśvamedha. The ritual spans in time from a dawn of Hindu history to the early modern times. It explores its origins, and its cultural and social functions. As there is evidence that horses sacrifice was known among the Romans, Celts, Scythians, Slavs and other Indo-European people the paper examines possible common conceptual origin of these and similar rites.
