Anthropological and Philological Analysis of Social and Gender Relations in Indo-European Myths: Priest-King of the Warriors and Witch-Queen of the Others

Abstract: Práca predstavuje pokus o filologicko-antropologické prehodnotenie vybraných mytologických tém na poli porovnávacej indoeurópskej mytológie. Predmetom záujmu je dvojica mytologických cyklov: 1) stvorenie hierarchickej spoločnosti a 2) konflikt elít s vojskom čarodejnice. Textové štruktúry, ktoré sú v rámci uvedených tematických okruhov identifikované ako komparatívne analogické, sú následne interpretované ako reflexie sociálnych procesov prebiehajúcich v ich materských spoločenstvách.

Abstract: Thesis deals with the anthropologically reassessed topics of Indo-European comparative mythology. A pair of mythological themes is focused on: 1) primordial creation of stratified society and 2) the conflict of elites with the army led by a witch. More or less invariant textual structures attested throughout the comparative process within these thematic areas are subsequently interpreted as reflections of social processes running in contextual background of analyzed myths.
