This paper discusses Linda Ivanits's book, "Russian Folk Belief". The paper states that the book is a foundational, and possibly one-of-a-kind work, exploring concepts of Russian culture that have previously been unknown. The bedrock themes that are present within Ivanits's work are continually demonstrated within her text through real memories and experiences of Russian people. The paper describes how Ivanits clearly demonstrates how a tradition associated with eons of standards and cultural practices has evolved through more modern times into the age of Christianity. Each section of her book weaves the roots of Russian folk belief with the dominance of the Christian ethic and practice.
