Sažetak

Lustration rituals in Rome have long been considered
rituals of purification. In this paper the authors
argue that lustration rituals may be considered foundational
rites in which elements of the Indo-European
cosmogonic myth is re-enacted. Several types
of lustration rituals will be examined using textual
evidence found in the works of ancient authors, the most important of which is the Suovetaurilia. Comparisons
to the Vedic aśvamedha and reconstructed
Slavic mythical texts are also included. Significant
elements include animal sacrifice, the leading of animals
in a circle and ritual dances.
