ORIGIN AND MYTHOLOGICAL MEANING OF MOTIVE OF BLINDNESS IN THE OSSETIAN LEGEND ABOUT RUIMON

Darchiev Anzor Valer'evich
V. I. Abaev North-Ossetian Institute of Humanities and Social Studies of Vladikavkaz Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Government of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania


Abstract. The article aims to examine the motive of blindness in the Ossetian legend on the serpentine monster called Ruimon. Analyzing conceptions on dragons in different mythological traditions the author concludes that the closest analogy to blind Ruimon is the Judaic blind dragon Leviathan also appearing under the name Taniniver. This correlation indicates the cultural contacts of the Ossetians’ ancestors with the bearers of Judaic mythological tradition, which, most probably, took place in the Middle Ages.
Key words and phrases: осетинская мифология, иудейская мифология, слепота, дракон, Руймон, Левиафан, Танинивер, Ossetian mythology, Judaic mythology, blindness, dragon, Ruimon, Leviathan, Taniniver
