Šešo, L. (2003). O krsniku: od tradicijske pojave u predajama do stvarnog iscjelitelja. Studia ethnologica Croatica, 14/15(1), 23-53. Preuzeto s http://hrcak.srce.hr/47756
The paper examines the traditional phenomenon of the krsnik as a supernatural being, on the basis of the manuscripts and published materials obtained from the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research in Zagreb. The phenomenon of the krsnik appears in Slovenia as well as in certain regions of Croatia, namely, Istria and the Croatian Littoral with the islands of Kvarner. The paper discusses the birth and life of the krsnik, various other similar supernatural beings, and the krsnik as medicine man and healer, focusing on the example of a living krsnik from the island of Krk. The author presents the krsnik as a traditional phenomenon that is a constituent element of a genre belonging to oral literature, but also as a vital element of the spiritual folk culture in Croatia.
