Etnolog 16 (2006)
Kamni, ljudje in voli (?)
<p>The article entitled Stones, people and oxen (?), subtitled Memories of work in some Slovene millstone quarries, is a specific verbal conglomerate of the topography of known and discovered millstone quarries in Slovenia and an ethnological treatise on millstone makers; it addresses the duration and type of their activity, their mutual relations, skills, basic working techniques and tools, transport of millstones, communication with customers and sales.
Baronica Maria Wambolt in zdravljenje prašičev na Dolenjskem s pomočjo homeopatije
<p>Originally, only people were treated with homeopathy, but in the early 19th century its use was spread to domestic animals. The fi rst sources reporting homeopathic treatment of domestic animals in Slovenia date from the 1830s. To date, several lay homeopaths have been identifi ed who treated people as well as domestic animals. According to the gathered data, the following people treated animals in Dolenjsko in the early 20th century: the landowner, miller and sawmiller Jakob Košak (1829–1918), the priest Baltazar Bartol (1821–1911), and baroness Maria Wambolt.
Primerno in lepo skozi bonton
<p>A person’s body is a basic given and we communicate with our environment with our body. All natural conditions, activities, and changes of the body are always observed, compared, and considered in the sense of social and cultural norms. These norms determine what is beautiful, desirable, prestigious, decent, etc. The human body is, of course, not a naked body, but above all a (standardly) dressed body.
"Sedanjost" v povojnih raziskavah oblačilne kulture na Slovenskem
<p>Our review of older sources on clothing culture in Slovenia shows that the authors dealt intensively with material from the “then present” and that descriptions of life as it was actually lived and observed were quite ordinary. This was commonly practised throughout the 19th century in spite of increasingly frequent warnings that the “national treasures are vanishing”, suggesting a need to look back into the past, and this development strengthened in the 20th century, when there is hardly any comprehensive research of the present.
Aleksandrinke - življenje v Egiptu in doma
<p>The article presents the author’s research into the phenomenon of the Alexandrian Women carried out in the villages of Prvačina, Gradišče above Prvačina, Bilje, Bukovica, Zalošče, ©empas, and ©empeter near Nova Gorica. The Alexandrian Women were women and girls from Goriška who found employment in Egypt. Rich and well-educated European families started to move to Egypt after the construction of the Suez Canal (1869), and the first girls from Goriška accompanied the families from Trieste and Milan which employed them to Alexandria or Cairo.
<p>The Ambonwari from Papua New Guinea had a rich repertoire of songs and nearly all were connected with dancing. Together, they represent the entire life cycle of the individual as well as the whole village. Many of them were directly connected with the initiation of young boys. At the time when the villagers were still considering the option of performing initiation rites, it was undesirable to publish their songs.
Grozljivost in bebčevost hudičeve demonskosti
<p>In popular beliefs (infl uenced throughout the centuries by strong elements of Christianity, its elements, norms, and morals), the figure of the devil as the opposite pole of good is more frequently present than any other mythic creature.
Pričevanja o svetniških zavetništvih v Trubarjevem katekizmu iz leta 1575
<p>The slovene protestant Catechism, written by Primož Trubar and published in Tübingen in 1575, among others critically addressed the Catholic worship of saints and their patronages. The Catechism was meant for Slovene readers, but Trubar also mentions patronages, which were not common in Slovenia. The treatise explores which saints were commonly worshipped in Slovenia in the Late Middle Ages and 16th century. The evidence stems from contemporary church patrocinia, saint names which were popular as given names, surnames derived from them, sculptures and paintings, and other sources.

Identiteta in lokalni muzeji
<p>The Slovene nation formed its identity in historical contacts with the peoples, nations, and states which surround its territory; at times in peaceful coexistence, and at times in violent conflicts. The importance of the border in a social as well as territorial sense is quite clear in the intense conditions of close contact with neighbouring ethnic groups. The Slovenes of Primorska primarily shaped their identity in historical contacts with Latin peoples – the Italians and Friulians; at times in peaceful coexistence, and at times in confl icts.
