Pysanka Legends


The Virgin Oranta, a Christianized version of the Berehynia

On the pages that follow I have collected many different legends about pysanky.  When known, I have included sources.  Many of the legends are from Voropay, and I have included my own translation of his section on pysanka legends here.

This section is still a work in progress.
