Abstract

The paper examines a mythological tractate of the Lusatian researcher Michael Frenzel (Fren{t}zel) on Slavic deities from the 17th century. The tractate (“three dissertations”), which contains an eclectic description of the Slavic and the Lusatian pantheons, is a typical case of the so-called “cabinet mythology”. This kind of literature, nevertheless, also needs to be analyzed: in part as a monument to scientific thought, partly (although with a large dose of caution) as a secondary source for the reconstruction of local - in this case Lusatian - mythological tradition.
