Sacralization of landscape – mechanisms and processes of sacral organization of space

Scholars of mythology have recently observed that pre-Christian Slavs dedicated to their main gods, Perun, Velesand Mokoš, specially selected places in the landscape. Such “mythological tripartite structures”, as a copy of orderly holy heavenly world on Earth, were discovered in several Slavic countires, including a number of places in Croatia. We distinguish several categories: princely, tribal, rural and proto-urban “sacred triangles”.

In which Slavic countries can we expect to find similar vestiges in landscapes? Had the “Sun angle”, present in such triangles, been inherited from earlier times? Is it possible to discover material remains of rituals associated with the three sacred points by employing archaeological methods? What other traces of pre-Christian Slavic religion we might read from the landscape or the already collected finds and samples? These are some of the questions we shall try to answer.
