Astral Symbolism on the Pre-Romanesque Relief in Keutschach (Hodiše)
Astralna simbolika predromanskega reliefa v Hodišah (Keutschach)
The author attempts to prove that the pre-Romanesque relief on the facade of the parish church of St George in Keutschach (Hodiše) in Austrian Carinthia is a depiction of the Orion constellation. He justifies his theory with historical and art-historical facts. The main emphasis is laid on the fact that traces of late Classical astral mythologisation and deification are also recognisable in the Slovenian folk tradition.
