Description
Summary:The study examines the representation of the concept of Holy Trinity in popular religious songs. After Christianization the Eastern Slavs, the main cathedral of the State of Kiev was dedicated to "Sophia", the wisdom of God and Saint George. After the Mongol invasion, the cathedrals of the strengthening State of Moscow were devoted to the Holy Trinity and the Holy Mother of God (Theotokos). The Orthodox theologians made a great effort to analyze the dogma of Holy Trinity, however in popular songs, we can only find the name of the Holy Trinity, "its comprehension vanishes or it gets unattainable". In one of the songs, the world was created by "the holy spirit and breath of Sagaof". In another one, Saint George prays to "the indivisible Holy Trinity". At the Russian feast of the Holy Trinity (at Pentecost), "Jesus Christ himself/ Showed his face in the Holy Trinity/ let out his Holy Spirit to the Earth". The study gives an analysis of the names of God in the song titled "The Book of Depth" comparing the verbal representation to the depictions of God appearing on the icons. In popular religious songs, the singers aim at listing the names of God completely. However the Divine Being remains always personal maintaining direct relationships with the believers. In the legends, God and the saints are represented in another way, but the present study leaves this subject untouched.
