Religious Fables, Folklore, Legends, and Stories

How Fables and Legends Get Started
Commentary by Frank L. Hoffman
Articles Submitted by Yuri Klitsenko, Russia

In early July 2005 Yuri began sending us some articles about a lake in central Russia that had disappeared over night sometime between the evening of 18 May to the early morning of 19 May 2005. This event is related to two of the other articles we have in this article series.  See:

The Legend of the City of Kitezh Submerging Itself in Svetloyar Lake
The Monks and Mermaids

Now a fascinating new series of rumors and speculations are emerging about this disappearing lake event, which is exactly the "food" that fables and legends feed upon until they become part of the local culture.  See:

Americans earn their place in Russian folklore

Yuri Klitsenko is a Russian living in Moscow.  He works for the Russian Orthodox Church.
