Triglavska roža in Zlatorog med simboliko in stvarnostjo<br>Triglav Rose and Zlatorog in Their Symbolism and Reality</br>
AbstractThe Tale of Zlatorog speaks of a human-nature interrelationship, close to today’s environmentalism. It has been highly popular in Slovenia and abroad since collected in the Julian Alps and published in 1868. In the first part of this paper, we investigate the Triglav rose, particularly, which real plant species might be reflected in the story. In the second part, we compare the drama with real processes in ecosystems. As reflected in the narrative, humans did not only recognize creatures’ supporting roles: they comprehended the interconnectedness that sustains life and survival. While tales acted as the inspiration for ethical teaching, we assume that artists used the dynamics developed in the Tale of Zlatorog and alike for transferring the reverence for life and sustaining biocentric ethics.
