Abstract
The study presents the activities of the American folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland (1824–1903) in Italy. Leland‘s aim was to find relics of the ancient religion of the Etruscans and the ancient Romans among the peasants and shepherds living in the upper regions of Apennine, between Florence and Bologna. Collections of legends and tales of the local inhabitants of Apennine published by Ch. G. Leland in the 1890s, became the primary sources which the current representatives of the Wicca religious movement refer to. Leland‘s ethnographic activities can be described as quite controversial, and have found very little response not only in the Italy at the time, but also in the American academic space. The contribution does not attempt to give Wicca followers any answer to the question if the current Wicca may still refer to Leland‘s work or not, but wants to provide a critical view of his personage and his method of collecting data.
Abstract (in Czech)
Studie představuje aktivity amerického folkloristy Charlesa Godfreyho Lelanda (1824-1903) v Itálii. Jeho cílem bylo nalézt pozůstatky starověkého náboženství Etrusků a starých Římanů mezi rolníky a pastýři žijícími v horních regionech Apenin, mezi Florencií a Boloňou. Sbírky legend a povídek místních obyvatel Apenin zveřejněné Ch. G. Lelandem v devadesátých letech 20. století se staly primárními zdroji, na které se odvolávají současní zástupci náboženského hnutí Wicca. Lelandova etnografická činnost může být vnímána jako poměrně kontroverzní a možná proto našla velmi málo pozitivních odezev nejen v samotné Itálii té doby, ale i v americkém akademickém prostředí. Příspěvek se nepokouší poskytnout následovníkům Wicca žádnou odpověď na otázku, zda se stávající Wicca může i nadále odkazovat na práci Lelanda nebo ne, ale chce poskytnout kritický pohled na jeho osobnost a způsob sběru dat.
