Russian word "pagan temple" — most likely derived from the Slavic root "skepticism": skepati — hack; skapanoe (skepanoe) — cut, hewn (transition "e" in "a" due to the influence akayuschego say).
Here we meet with a direct indication that the material of the old Russian built the Sanctuary, there was a tree.
An old expression "temples of sgrazhdaem" is the latest interpretation — are building, building. But before it was probably meant "Gorozhenoye" (fencing) Sacred places timbered fence.
Any hewn wooden long object (pole, shaft, spear shaft) in the old Russian called "skepische" or "iskepische", which directly confirms this pattern of word formation.
However, contrary to the old folk saying that "kap not in the logs, and the ribs", the pagan temple of in Russia yet built.
It is noteworthy that in the south-west of Russia, "chapel" (kaplichka) until the twentieth century meant — a chapel, a chapel, shrine. Small chapel in the "region of the Don" and the XIX century was called "kapishte."
In Catholicism, the word "chapel" and still mean a chapel or chapel, and a Catholic priest called the chaplain.
V.Dal leads Old Russian word "tserkvische" is the designation of a pagan temple, implying the presence of some buildings.
Obviously, in addition to "Gorozhenoye" Kapey there also Kapi "with podvershnoy" — covered.
M.Fasmer in his dictionary gives the old Russian word "Yatka" to mean: "a tent, retail space, a tent, a cave, as well as a pagan temple." It is noteworthy that "Yatka" — a word derived from the ancient "yat" — take, hide, hide.
Thus, there is a small view of the (log) construction — cage skryvische.
Another proof of the existence of covered houses of the definition of the word is "Kushch" in the dictionary V.Dal — "tent, gallop, carport, canopy, kap." Add to the above is that in ancient Kuschami also called the Sacred Grove is drawing most revered by the people of springs.
Interesting in their interpretations, although not entirely clear in meaning, is an old word Tver 'okapany "- in the later meaning" similar, very similar. " Perhaps initially, the value was "in the image of Creation" — Write-offs (isdolbany) from nature or representation.
In Russian In the mid-north (heart) temples are sometimes installed "written rock" covered rukosechnym Uzoroche.
Often became the center of the Sanctuary "sill" — lying alone in the wild boulder. Such stones are considered vested immemorial magic healing powers. Some of the Holy Stones popular trail is overgrown and not to this day.
The master stonecutters, through some simple peck iron was applied to the surface of the stone often weave pattern.
Stone isdolb covered handmade images of old familiar masters are the wooden carvings and reflect a picture of the device Mirokolitsy.
Inside any Old Kapi, located in front of the Sacred Isdolbami "zhrische" (zhertvische) — the place where sacrifices (required) gods and ancestors (usually the altar was dug into the ground thick deck).
Next to zhertvischem was "Ohnište" — a place layout of the Sacred Fire which is established to have burned some Kapyah quench.
In the sanctuary burned special — "Grated Fire" have the same name "woody". He gets the cleanest way — friction of wood on wood. In more recent times was obtained through pure fire from flint vykresaniya kresalom iron or a glass lentils (bryushistogo, pot-bellied glass) directly from the sun.
Despite its apparent simplicity, the Russian pagan temple — a complex phenomenon that is closely connected to his organization of sacred space with the Great Lad Mirokolitsy.
