The Siberian Village of Okunevo as a Place of Power and Its Sacred Landscape

  • Julia Senina European University at Saint Petersburg

Abstract

The paper deals with contemporary places of power and New Age sacred landscapes in Russia. It focuses on the Siberian village of Okunevo, its sacred sites, and their worshippers. Formation of this place of power was a result of the activity of individuals (both academics and adherents of new religious movements), combined with the specific interpretation of archaeological sites and the natural landscape of the area. The landscape around the village of Okunevo affects the interaction of people with the sacred loci and the ways the signs, symbols and narratives about them are created.
