Abstract

The authors present a structure of cult points in Prague which was used during the Early Middle Ages. The structure was composed on the basis of astronomical and ritual principles. The former present a sun calendar. The latter principles led the authors to determine the use of a ritual angle, ritual measuring units and their multiples. The entire structure is thus also an ideogram, which supposedly also aided in sustaining equilibrium among the natural forces.
