Kresnik: An Attempt at a Mythological Reconstruction<br>Kresnik: poskus mitološke rekonstrukcije</br>
AbstractThe Slovene Kresnik tradition has numerous parallels in Indo-European mythologies. Research has established connections between the myth about a hero’s fight with a snake (dragon) and the vegetational cult of Jarilo/Zeleni Jurij. The Author establishes a hypothesis about Iranian influences (resemblance to figures of Yima/Yama and Mithra) and outlines a later transformation of Kresnik in the period of Christianization.
