Jesus Christ as a divinity hero. (A. Fantalov, water-colour, 2001).

The character of the Cultural Hero is wide spread in World Mythology. Especially it is vivid in Indo-European traditions. Scandinavian Odin, Celtic Ogma and Lugh, Slav Dazdbog and Jarila, Baltic Sovius, Indian Yama, Greek Hermes, Italiam Mercurius – all of them are images of the Cultural Hero. The central image of Christianity – Jesus Christ belongs tu this type also. It is interesting, that at the ritter Middlages Christ was accepted as ‘divinity king’.

Bible talks that Christ will win a victory over Antichrist, Beast and Dragon. This great plot related with plots of Zoroastrian mythology 2 (Traetaona and dragon Ajy Dahac), Indian mythology 2 (Trita and dragon Visvarupa), Greek mythology (Apollo and serpent Pithon) and Russian tales (Ivan and Zmey Gorinich).
