Description

The book is devoted to ancient Thracian legends and myths. Due to the fact that they are most often considered as a part of the Hellenic religion and mythology, and the Thracian sky is inhabited by force with the same deities inhabiting Mount Olympus, an attempt was made to separate the local Gods from the Greek ones. In this way it is proposed that the traditions are truly Thracian and that the cults and characters of these people should be absorbed later by their southern neighbors and processed according to their own prism of worldview. The aim is to bring out the Thracian legendary and mythological origins in the context of the reality in the foreground.
