Summary / Abstract:

LTNagrinėjant istoriniuose šaltiniuose ir ekspedicijų metu užfiksuotus lietuvių liaudies muzikos instrumentų - kanklių ir trimitų Lietuvos katalikų bažnyčiose simbolius, šių instrumentų aprašus lyginant su analogais Biblijoje, iškeliama ir pagrindžiama hipotezė, kad Lietuvos katalikų bažnyčių ikonografijoje aptinkami kanklių ir trimitų simboliai yra inkultūracijos palikimas.

ENOn the grounds of the investigation of the reflections of the Lithuanian musical instruments kankles (Lithuanian stringed instrument) and trumpets in the symbolic of the Lithuanian Catholic churches collected from historic sources and field expeditions, descriptions of these instruments and the manner of playing them, comparing them with analogues in the Bible, the hypothesis was framed and grounded that the symbols of the musical instruments kankles and trumpets met in the iconography of the Lithuanian Roman Catholic churches in the context of religion and mind are the inheritance of enculturation. The investigation of descriptions of the images of the kankles and trumpets in the iconography of the Lithuanian Catholic churches, the area of their spreading and analysis of the local origin proved the images of these instruments to be most vividly reflected above the churches, the central and side altars, pulpits, the organ of the churches, the gates of churchyards and window panels of churches and the kankles - above one of the altars, balconies and incrustations of the organ. The investigation showed that these ancient Lithuanian instruments were given the view of a musical instrument in the Bible. That is why the ancient Lithuanian musical instruments appeared in the Catholic symbolic in a narrow sense when religious Lithuanians commenced presenting a trumpet or a Psalter of the Bible fitted to the psychological disposal of the Lithuanians. The trumpets above the churches or the gates of churchyards are a symbol of a herald to the church (temple).This corresponds to the symbolic of the Holy Writ, the functions of the main means of signaling system on the beginning of a specific religious ritual in pre- Christian Lithuania. The trumpets and kankles above the altars and pulpits symbolized thanksgiving and glorification of the God. Both in the Holy Writ and in the ancient Lithuania the trumpets also were a symbol of transmitting an information or news about the next world. The symbolic of kankles was addressed to the society for the concentration of its attention on the ritual of chanting a song and also saying that the music of this instrument radiates light, the good and makes the evil forces retreat. The above symbolic of musical instruments used by Jews, Christians and Lithuanian pre-Christians might express the existence of common types of musical instruments. This expresses the junction of Judaism, Christianity and ancient Lithuanian religion. Such musical instruments may be called the Jewish, Christian and Lithuanian symbols. The Christians appeared from the Judaism and the Lithuanian Christians appeared from the heathenism. This gives proof of the hypothesis of the work that the symbols of the Lithuanian folk music instruments kankles and trumpets met in the iconography of the Lithuanian Roman Catholic churches are the inheritance of integration of the ancient Lithuanian religion into the iconography of the Lithuanian Roman Catholic Church.
