Book review

Elsewhere we read, in like manner: "Because they called fire her sister, and the source - the brother, they did not throw the ashes, and dried her tears, brother." Lazarus Parpetsi [27], the writer of V century, speaks of a violent attack of Armenian Christians in the sacred fire, the cult of which the Persians sought to spread in Armenia: "They took the fire and carried it, and was lowered into the water in his brother depth, as the saying goes them of false teachers Persians. " The last part of this statement, however, flawed. As far as we know, the Persians brosalisvyaschenny fire in the water and collected in a pile of ashes within the temples, within which the fire and burned. When the floating island (sea monster), astride which Kersaspa [28] accidentally lit a fire, and the fire sank down into the water, it is counted as a great athlete sin. The ritual was originally Armenian. Apparently, part of the Armenian Sisters of the cult of fire - extinguish it in the depths of a loving brother, water, a ritual whose origins are rooted in the myth of nature, like the kinship of lightning and rain, or the birth of fire out of the stem in the Holy Sea. Whatever the true meaning of this action, the ashes from the sacred fire became a part of the water gives it healing powers. Even today in Armenia, for example in the cities of Diyarbakir ACN and give the patient to drink a potent drug, which includes flaky ash from an oak fire, mixed with water. Kalandia [29] describes a similar custom among the ancient Latvians in his article on the death and burial rituals of pre-Christian peoples of the Baltic. As in Europe, the oak - a sacred tree of the god of the heavens and the storm, it's easy to understand what is at the heart of the ancient custom.
