Abstract

In the following paper the author makes a review of the main theories that have been put forward regarding the reconstruction of the pre-Christian Slavic religion, giving special attention to those postulating close links between the Iranian and the Slavic people in prehistoric times. Said theories are based on two main arguments. The first states that there are a series of etymologies that may have been loans from eastern Iranian into common Slavic. The second focuses on the dualistic character of pre-Christian Slavic religion and its connection to Iranian dualism. After re-examining the data that serves as the basis for these postulates, the author argues that there is no solid theoretical evidence to propose a clear Iranian influence in Slavic paganism.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

El autor hace una revisión de las principales teorías que se han planteado en relación con la reconstrucción de la religión eslava pre-cristiana, prestando especial atención a aquellos vínculos estrechos entre el pueblo iraní y el eslavo en tiempos prehistóricos. Dichas teorías se basan en dos argumentos principales. La primera afirma que hay una serie de etimologías que pueden haber sido préstamos del este de Irán en el eslavo común. La segunda se centra en el carácter dualista de la religión eslava pre-cristiana y su conexión con el dualismo iraní. Después de reexaminar los datos que sirven de base para estos postulados, el autor argumenta que no hay sólida evidencia teórica para proponer una clara influencia iraní en el paganismo eslavo.
