Abstract

The aim of this study is to demonstrate that there is nothing new or peculiarly Hesychastic in the hagiographie style employed by Patriarch Euthymius, and that this style of "pletenie sloves" was borrowed by him and other medieval Slavic writers from an earlier and long existing Byzantine tradition that predated the Hesychast Revival. In effect, this study attempts to disprove one of the basic assumptions of present scholarship of the period of the Second South Slavic Influence.

Abstract

Textiles, textile production and clothing were essentials of living in prehistory, locked into the system of society at every level – social, economic and even religious. Textile crafts not only produced essential goods for everyday use, most notably clothing, but also utilitarian objects as well as representative and luxury items.Prehistoric clothing and their role in identity creation for the individual and for the group are also addressed by means of archaeological finds from Stone the Iron Age in Central Europe.
