The parable from the fight from the solar hero using the dragon takes the primary devote the Slavic world, but nowadays you are able to within the fragments of folklore. As archaeologists recreate the initial contour from the vessel by fractions, so modern scholars by such bits of folklore restore the initial outlook from the Slavs. This myth is most fully restored because the fight of Perun with Veles, the God of Storm using the Serpent. Veles the serpent is most clearly preserved in Czech culture. In all of those other Slavs world, with time he grew to become connected with fertility so that as a protector of cattle.
Myth in the pure form, after Christianization and lots of centuries of struggle against paganism, has regrettably not survived. Therefore, it’s been reconstructed within the above pointed out work by Ivanov and Toporov . Probably, like a general overview, the parable represents the next sequence. The God of Thunder is situated above and here is the Serpent within the waters or perhaps in the roots around the globe tree or near a stone. During its persecution through the God of Thunder, the Snake consistently hid inside a cow, a horse, a guy, a tree, a rock, and water. Following the murder from the Snake, rain, water, and rivers appear. It’s thought that the immediate precursor of the myth is really a myth of hostile struggle from the Sun using the Serpent. "Within the latter situation, might be recognized archaic individuals Lithuanian and Belorussian texts in which a word that may mean the God of Thunder functions only within the concept of the tool of God of Sun. This renovation correlates with interpretation from the fight like a description from the total solar eclipse excellently. And also the hypothesis that within the earliest variant was the sun’s rays is completely proven with this interpretation.
Inside a later period, Perun was replaced, for instance, with a blacksmith, by other folk heroes, with Christianization by God, Elijah the prophet, or St. George [Figure 4]. In the same manner the Snake was modified into Gorynych, Solovey the Thief, and also the chort (Christianization). For instance, within the Belorussian epic, osiloks (heroes) grapple with the Snake, then among the heroes Ilya overcomes the Snake having a miraculous weapon. Within the Great Russian epic, quite the hero with similar name Ilya fights avoid the serpent, however with Solovey (the term means ‘nightingale’) . They think that the term ‘Solovey’ is really a substitute for that name Veles, when its very pronunciation would be a taboo. That’s the reason the truly amazing Russian epic cycle about Ilya Muromets includes because the primary story the Serpent fight along with the above pointed out Belorussian variant. The solar eclipse interpretation proves this statement. Now it might be apparent the Belorussian version may be the earliest. The 2nd hero – Dobrynya Nikitich fought against with Zmey Gorynych , and Alyosha Popovich interceded for any threatening cloud to wet the paper wings of Tugarin Zmeyevich . Thus, the battle with Serpents from the central three heroes in the Great Russian epic reflects the battle of Ra using the serpent Apop throughout a solar eclipse . Thus, all the heroes possess a solar origin.
There’s exactly the same motif within the above quoted spell against snakes (chapter 1) – "And I’ll kill thou by thunder." Here thunder is really a weapon within the fight from the god using the serpent.
Let us possess a detailed look the way the solar eclipse description is intertwined in Russian folk tales. The story book ‘Ivan Bykovich’  will work for the reason. Initially, following the birth of heroes
"The boys began to develop by a lot, nearly as good dough increases on leaven so that they are attracted up."
Once we identify heroes using the Sun, such rapid growth after their birth could match the look of the sun’s rays following the totality. For that Sun ‘grows’ really fast, really as much as 1 hour or much more time, it’s in good correlation using the characteristic duration of dough rising. Then within the story book an enormous stone seems. Ivan Bykovich
"found the stone and thus moved it by his feet – stone nay rumbled and folded to another side from the garden and broke a variety of trees. Under that stone a cellar opened up, within the basement there have been three heroic horses, harness for fight hung around the walls: you will find permanently guys to walk about!"
This stone within our renovation could be related to Alatyr to which you will find wonderful products. And again exactly the same motif of acquiring wonderful weapons initially in the Island Buyan exists. Just with individuals weapons, it’s possible to overcome the dragon.
Prior to the fight around the Kalinovy bridge within the river Smorodina to his dog
"states Chudo-Yudo six-headed:" What art thou, dog meat, stumble for, you crowquill, tremble, and also you, Dog-made of woll, bristled? Do you consider Ivan Bykovich is here now? So he, the great fellow, not born, but when was created, he doesn’t fit to some war: I’ll set him on a single hands by another slam – only wet place is going to be!Inch
"Ivan Bykovich leaped out: "Don’t boast the Evil! Not catching obvious falcon it’s early to pinch down not trying a great fellow, no neediness to blaspheme him. And let us easier to try forces: who overcomes, let he boast."
Here the start of the battle from the Sun using the dragon is described. It’s important to note the comparison of the good fellow having a obvious falcon. In ancient Egypt, the pharaohs had god Horus – a falcon, his or her direct ancestor. Within the light from the interpretation from the dragon fight like a description from the solar eclipse new explanations of ‘Kalinovy Bridge’ over the ‘river Smorodina’ are attracted. Both of these terms are nearly always present in fights with dragons. Experts still don’t agree with this is from the pair. A number one investigator of Russian favorite anecdotes and tales around the globe, Propp , authored: "Kalinovy Bridge – the everlasting item in favorite anecdotes. To describe it I won’t undertake, except to state the river is generally a type of boundary between your worlds". Such pessimism is justified, because there are several interpretations of those terms. As appropriately stated by Propp , it had been hard to select a appropriate one. In a single version, Kalinovy Bridge got its origin in the Russian word ‘kalit’ ‘, ‘to heat hot’. The specific fiery river Smorodina is associated with the term, which already within the 11 cent. AD was utilized meaning of "stink, strong stuffy, smelly, suffocating smell, fumes, stinking spirit, esp. burnt. Smorodny – adj. stinking, smelly, smoked from fatty burnt" . Consequently, the battle happens on the in demand bridge within the stinking river of fireside.
Out of the box suggested in the following paragraphs, the solar eclipse interpretation makes this form of the reason from the names from the bridge and also the river most plausible. Furthermore, it’s appropriate to point out the Russian word ‘Smorodina’ might be quite near to Polish ‘smok’ – dragon. Within this situation the specific river signifies the Dragon directly. The suggested version is just a belief, the reality might be much deeper. This really is yet another conclusion of the model that could be researched around the phonetic level later on. Thus, the battle happens on the site quite suitable for a complete eclipse: close to the in demand bridge around the Snake River. Exactly what does the bridge connect? We are able to suggest two mountain tops Manu and Bakhu within the hieroglyph Akhet , between that the Serpent waits for that Sun. [Figure 5].
Once the hero fought against most abundant in effective Chudo-Yudo, he couldn’t overcome him alone, and also at the final moment only outdoors assistance helped him win:
"Ah! – states Chudo-Yudo, – you reside by deceptiveness you’ve got a help." The horse from the hero came running, started to conquer him by hoofs and Ivan Bykovich meanwhile rose from the ground, dodged and stop fiery finger of Chudo-Yudo. Then allow him to cut lower heads, knocked lower all up to and including single, cut a corner into small pieces and put all within the river Smorodina."
Our renovation dictates to anticipate within this episode the hero’s dying, his resurrection and victory. Used the dying is substituted by knocking the hero deep in soil, his resurrection by climbing from the ground, and victory only is proven completely. Following the victory, Ivan Bykovich was blown by trickery in to the dungeon of the old man. This trip to the dungeon signifies the hero died also it proves the dying was substituted within the tale.
That old man locked ships in oak.
"Ivan Bykovich found the oak, hits it with club numerous occasions and orders: "Exactly what is within arrives!Inch Released the very first ship Ivan Bykovich came aboard and yelled: "All follow me!" – and continued his way. After driving a little, looked back – and saw a numerous pressure of ships and motorboats! All praise him, all thanks."
The Indian Rig Veda describing the battle from the Solar god Indra using the serpent Val frequently pointed out the releasing water, cattle and individuals in the rock following the victory. For instance, one hymn to Indra describes him :
"Who slew the Dragon, freed the Seven Rivers, and drove the kine forth in the cave of Vala, Begat the fireplace between two gemstones, the spoiler in players’ fight, He, O men, is Indra."
Though the existence of total eclipses in Rig Veda plus other sources of Indo-European cultures is really a productive theme for more analysis, this hymn is very prominent. As was previously mentioned, within the ancient Indo-European language ‘oak’ and ‘stone’ sounded exactly the same, and also the releasing from the ships and individuals in the oak in "Ivan Bykovich" is strikingly similar to the liberation water and cattle in the rock in Rig Veda. Both occasions happened following the victory from the solar hero, i.e. following the finish from the total phase of the solar eclipse within our renovation. Particularly the hymn signifies the numerous and Bakhu mountain tops directly, practically describing the hieroglyph Ahet with two mountain tops and fire together, which was just born.
The dragon fight myth from the Slavs is tracked in rites. A notable example may be the marriage ceremony by which Ivanov and Toporov  demonstrated the groom and also the bride are likened towards the dragon fighter and the wife, the marriage loaf around the world tree, and also the wedding itself towards the marriage from the Sun. This is a song in the bachelorette party :
Oh Smoke, Smoke River,
Between mountain tops Smoke passed
Over Smoke – the rapid river –
Kalinovy bridges paved
Beams have brushwood.
That nobody along bridges go,
Along Kalinovys nobody passes.
As Ivan goes along bridges,
As Mikhaylovich will pass
Behind him he leads Aksinya
Takes across Nikolaevna…
From the purpose of look at the solar eclipse, the song describes the forest passing between Bakhu and Manu mountain tops. The solar hero only could be in the place that’s the reason nobody else will go across the bridges. Also it implies that your daughter’s groom Ivan Michaylovich is likened towards the dragon fighter and Aksinya Nikolaevna to his wife. The area is a website of the dragon fight. This interpretation created exactly the same conclusions as  using the difference that they are acquired via a new approach.
The marriage may be the marriage from the Sun that’s the reason the hypothesis that initially Slavs were built with a myth of hostile struggle from the Sun using the Serpent obtains yet another evidence.
The dragon slayers could be tracked in toponyms too. For instance, Krak, the legendary founding father of Krakow, the very first capital of Belgium, defeated the dragon of Wawel [Figure 6]. Wawel Hill can be found near the Vistula using the Royal Castle on the top from it. Phonetic analysis demonstrated the word ‘Wawel’ originates from the main *Vel-, meaning the god Veles – a snake or perhaps a dragon. Simultaneously, in line with the same analysis, Krak comes from the "mountain tops". It’s reflected in opposition: Perun is at the very top, within the mountain tops, and also the Snake is lower through the water, within this situation, underneath the stone hill around the banks from the Vistula River.
The name Kyi, the oldest from the legendary siblings who founded Kiev, is connected using the root *kou-(forge)  that depicts him like a cruz who defeated a serpent that dwelt near Kiev. He harnessed the serpent to some plow and plowed the Serpent’s Walls towards the Black Ocean, in which the serpent was wiped out. The Serpent’s Walls really are a system of defensive walls, built-in the two century BC – 7 century AD mostly across the Dnepr River.
The evolution of the Slavic myth might be recommended the following. Initially the sun’s rays fought against using the serpent entirely compliance using the Egyptian myth. As weapons he used peruns (thunderbolts) – arrows, lightning, and gemstones. With time, the sun’s rays was substituted with Perun the god of Storm, also were built with a solar nature. And then Perun was substituted with solar heroes.
It’s notable that legendary figures, like the already pointed out Krak and Kyi were dragon slayers. These were ordinary mortals but were permitted to beat the dragons within the fight. It comes down from Ancient Egypt, in which the leader of the nation would be a direct descendant from the god from the Sun. Therefore the dragon might be slayed not with a mere mortal, but with a king or prince. At the outset of religion, just the pharaohs possessed an immortal soul. That gave them the authority to be dragon slayers. Using the evolution of faith, everyone began to own an immortal soul. Therefore, throughout the Slavic tribes to become a dragon slayer, one was needed not just to come with an immortal soul (as everybody had one) but additionally rapport towards the god from the Sun, which only leaders of nations had.
Thus, the 3 primary ideas from the ancient Egyptians which was inspired by solar eclipses were recorded by Aymen , are reflected within the Slavic outlook: the parable of creation and also the finish around the globe, slaying from the dragon and also the solar nature from the mind of condition.
