THE PROTO-SLAVIC PRE-CHRISTIAN RITUAL SCENARIO OF A MEĐIMURJE WEDDING AS AN IMITATION OF THE DIVINE WEDDING
Fruitfulness and fertility are widely represented symbolically in wedding traditions. The objective of this paper is to examine a folk Međimurje wedding comedy “Baba Went Mushroom Picking,” in a completely new research context, as a document of an agraphic culture, a source and path to the reconstruction of the fragments of former religious systems, specifically, vestiges of a Proto-Slavic ritual scenario on the basis of which the Međimurje wedding could be connected with the divine wedding as a paradigmatic model for all weddings. The paper also raises the crucial
question of whether this performative form also provides insight into pre-Christian wedding traditions and the ritual wedding scenario as a repetition of the sacred divine wedding.
