This is a thorough and well-documented study, examining the theology and anthropology of the Serbian folk epic. The book opens a new field in Slavic folklore and offers scholars material heretofore not readily available in English. The work sheds light also on the Serbian soul and culture. Conceptions of God, restlessness of the folk poet for the transcendental, the deep ontological, cosmic, and theurgic character of the heroes of the Serbian folk epic, man's destiny, man of culture or man of civilization, are just a few of the topics that the author has concerned himself with in this book.
