* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I have just received a translation of the Nart Sagas by John Colarusso. These are tales from the northern Caucasus region. The title says Circassians and Abkhazians, but the stories within are shared by other groups like the Ossetians and Nakhs. The term “Nart” actually comes from the Iranic term for “Hero.”

It’s thought that much of the lore within can be traced back to the Ossetians, who are the last remaining Iranic language speakers north of the Caucasus region. They founded a kingdom known as “Alania” that once covered much of the region where the sagas are found today. The Ossetians are a remnant of a vast Iranic language speaking continuum that once stretched throughout modern day Russia, one that we know influenced the Proto-Slavic culture. It will be interesting to see if there are any major parallels hinting at this.

Most academic interest in them currently seems to be based on comparison with Greek mythology and, bizarrely, the Arthurian romances. That last idea seems a bit shaky to me. Allegedly, the Alanic auxiliaries brought in by the Roman Empire could have spread their legends. But considering that our record of the native traditions from Western Europe are patchy, it seems unlikely that the legends of a small group of foreigners would be well-preserved there. The Greek connection makes a lot more sense to me. Anyway, I haven’t started it yet, so we’ll see what I find.

Hi, Zlote Jablko,

The book-discussion forums are special forums, and have rules different from most of the general discussion forums - most importantly, members don't start threads themselves, but rather request that a thread be started.

I've moved your post into the request thread. Please provide the book information we require before a thread is made (quoted below, from the first post in this request thread).

Thanks,
Sunflower

Only staff members can start new book threads on this board as each  thread's first message must be in a very specific format with specific  links used, etc.  If you would like a thread on a specific Academic book  started here, you may request it in this thread.

Each Request must have the following information or it will be ignored:

1) The (correct) title of the book
2) The author of the book
3) The book's ISBN (we prefer the old 10 digit one, but the new 13 digit will do).

Please  don't hide the above in a lot of text in the middle of a paragraph.  Remember, this board is for true academic works, not for popular press  books that sound scholarly. We will try to get new topics started as  soon as the few people authorized to create book topics get around to  it. This will NOT be immediately.

My mistake. I’ll be more careful posting in new forums.

Please refer to:

1) Nart Sagas: Ancient Myths and Legends of the Circassians and Abkhazians

2) John Colarusso

3) ISBN: 978-0-691-16914-9
