Події та новини кафедри
From ancient times, the inhabitants of the Slavic countries had close ties with the peoples of the East. Cultural contacts and interaction of cultures took place in different ways - usually they were the result of direct contact. However, often cultural influences were the result of the mediation of neighboring peoples, there was a long process of layering elements of different cultures. Influences did not necessarily have the character of direct borrowing - the more natural was the creative perception and transformation, taking into account the original traditions. Mutual influence of the cultures of the East and the Slavs can be traced in almost all branches of material and spiritual life. In this paper, we consider not only contacts at the level of everyday life, but also linguistic phenomena.
