万圣节前夜(每年10月31日),在其形成过程中逐渐融合了凯尔特习俗、天主教仪式和欧洲民间传统,最终形成了我们今天所见的这样一个节日。

带你速览万圣节编年史

1st Century

1世纪

Gaels believed that the border between this world and the otherworld became thin on Sambain; because animals and plants were dying, it allowed the dead to reach back through the veil that separated them from the living.

盖尔人相信,在死神节,现世与冥界的边界会逐渐消失。动物和植物纷纷死去,而死者将穿过把他们同生者隔开的幕布重回世间。

Bonfires played a major role in the Festival of Samhain. Celebrants wore costumes, mostly skins and animal heads, and danced around bonfires.

篝火对于死神节来说是必不可少的。参加庆典的人们穿上动物的皮毛和头颅做成的服装,围着篝火舞蹈。

By A.D. 43, Romans had conquered much of Celtic territory. Two Roman festivals were combined with the Celtic celebration of Samhain: Feralia, a day in late October when Romans commemorated the passing of the dead, and a day to honor Pomona, Roman goddess of fruit and trees.

公元43年,罗马人占领了凯尔特人的大部分领土,并将两个罗马节日与死神节的传统结合起来:一个是纪念死者的Feralia节(十月末的一天),另一个是纪念罗马的果树女神Pomona的节日。

Werewolf: The original werewolf of classical mythology, Lycaon, a king of Arcadia who, according to Ovid's Metamorphoses, was turned into a ravenous wolf by Zeus. Possibly the source of the term lycanthropy.

狼人:古罗马诗人奥维德在他的《变形记》中描绘了古典神话中狼人的原型——阿卡迪亚王吕卡翁,由于触怒天神宙斯而被变成了一匹狼。也许“变狼妄想狂”一词就是来源于这个故事。
