ROUMANIAN SUPERSTITION: DAYS AND HOURS. Grimm has said that "superstition in all its multifariousness constitutes a species of religion applicable to all the common household necessities of daily life;" and if we view it as such, particular forms of superstition may very well serve as guide to the character and habits of the particular nation in which they are prevalent. In Transylvania, however, the task of classifying all the superstitions that come under our notice is a peculiarly hard one, for perhaps nowhere else does this curious crooked plant of delusion flourish so persistently and in such bewildering variety as in the land beyond the forest; and it would almost seem as though the whole species of demons, pixies, witches, and hobgoblins, driven from the rest of Europe by the wand of science, had taken refuge within this mountain rampart, aware that here they would find secure lurking-places whence to defy their persecutors yet a while. i " Der Aberglaube in seiner bunten Mannigfaltigkeit bildet gewissennassen eine Religion fiir den ganzen neideren Hausbedarf." There are many reasons why such fabulous beings should retain an abnormally firm hold on the soil of these parts, and looking at the matter closely, we find no less than three distinct sources of superstition: --First, there is what may be called the indigenous superstition of the country, the scenery of which is particularly adapted to serve as background to all sorts of supernatural beings. There are innumerable caverns whose depths seem made to harbour whole legions of evil spirits; forest glades, fit only for fairy folk on moonlight nights; solitary lakes, which instinctively call up visions of water-sprites; golden treasures lying hidden in mountain...

Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ... THE LAND BEYOND THE FOKEST. CHAPTER XXVII. ROUMANIAN SUPERSTITION CONTINUED: ANIMALS--WEATHER --MIXED SUPERSTITIONS, SPIRITS, SHADOWS, ETC. Op the household animals the sheep is the most highly prized by the Roumanian, who makes of it his companion, and frequently his oracle, as by its bearing it is often supposed to give warning when danger is near. The swallows here, as elsewhere, are luck-bringing birds, and go by the name of galinele lui Dieu --fowls of the Lord. There is always a treasure to be found where the first swallow has been espied. The crow, on the contrary, is a bird of evil omen, VOL. II. A and is particularly ominous when it flies straight over the head of any man.1 The magpie, when perched on a roof, gives notice of the approach of guests,2 but a shrieking magpie meeting or accompanying a traveller denotes death. The cuckoo is an oracle to be consulted in manifold contingencies. This bird plays a great part in Roumanian poetry, and is frequently supposed to be the spirit of an unfortunate lover. It is never permissible to kill a spider, but a toad taking up its residence in a cow-byre should be stoned to death, as assuredly standing in the service of a witch, and sent there to purloin the milk. The same liberty must not, however, be taken with the equally pernicious weasel, and when these animals are found to inhabit a barn or stable, the peasant endeavours to render them harmless by diverting their thoughts into a safer channel. To this end a tiny threshing-flail is prepared for the male weasel, and a distaff for his female partner, and these are laid at some place the animals are known to frequent. Those houses which can boast of a house-snake are particularly lucky.3 Food is regularly placed for it near the hole; and...

Download The Land Beyond The Forest Vol 1 Of 2 books, Excerpt from The Land Beyond the Forest, Vol. 1 of 2: Facts, Figures, and Fancies From Transylvania In the spring of 1883 my husband was appointed to the command of the cavalry brigade in Transylvania, composed of two hussar regiments, stationed respectively at Hermanstadt and Kronstadt, -a very welcome nomination, as gratifying a long-cherished wish of mine to visit that part of the Austrian empire known as the Land beyond the forest. The two years spent in Transylvania were among the most agreeable of sixteen years' acquaintance with Austrian military life; and I shall always look back to this time as to something quaint and exceptional, totally different from all previous and subsequent experiences.
