In the mass consciousness, the opinion was firmly established that the Russian state, Ancient Russia were only thirteen and a half centuries. And the Varyag Rurik is considered to be the first ruler on Russian lands that brought statehood to their inhabitants. The fact that this is not true and Russia existed long before this legendary prince is stubbornly hushed up. Even the opinion of Mikhail Vasilievich Lomonosov, the author of the work “Ancient Russian History from the Beginning of the Russian People to the Death of Grand Prince Yaroslav the First or until 1054, is ignored. of the year”. The great Russian scientist wrote in it “about the distant antiquity of the Slavic people.” Here is a quotation from the 6th volume of his complete works (Moscow, Leningrad, 1952.) “At the beginning of the sixth century, according to Christ, the Slavic name was very famous, and the power of this people was not only in Thrace, in Macedonia, in Istria and in Dalmatia scary, but also contributed to the destruction of the Roman Empire. Wends and Ants, combining with their Slavs akin to themselves, increased their strength. The tribeship of these peoples is not only the current similarity in languages shows, but for a thousand two hundred years Iornand testified, leaving the news that “from the beginning of the Vistula river to the north through the vast space inhabited by Vendian peoples, whose names though for different generations and places are canceled, however, the general Slavs and Ants are called. ” It also adds that from the Vistula stretches to the Danube and to the Black Sea. Before Hornanda Ptolemy in the second century, according to Christ, he places the Wends near the whole Vendian Gulf, named after them, that is, near Finnish and Kurland. This author, moreover, left in memory that the great Vendian peoples had gained Sarmacia. And Pliny also testifies that in his time Vendas and Sarmatians lived near the Vistula … So, the Slavopol people rightly call themselves Sarmatian – and I and Kromer, according to the conclusion, will not be at fault, that the Slavs and Vendians in general are ancient Sarmatians. The Slavic name later reached the hearing of external writers and just before the kingdom of Justinian the Great, however, the people and language themselves stretch into ancient times. Peoples from names do not begin, but names are given to peoples. Others from themselves and from neighbors are called one. Others mean for others under the title, to the people themselves extraordinary or also unknown. Often with a new name, the old is obscured or the old, having crossed its home limits, is revered among strangers as a new one. Therefore, the Slavic name was probably used long ago among the peoples themselves, rather than in Greece or in Rome, it has reached and entered into custom.
But first we prove antiquity, then look for a name in it.
Firstly, about antiquity, we have a satisfied and almost obvious assurance in the majesty and power of the Slavic tribe, which has stood almost the same for more than one and a half thousand years, and for that it’s impossible to conceive that in the first century after Christ it suddenly expanded to a great crowd, that the natural being of the human course and the examples of the return of great nations are disgusting. Many of the testimonies of the great ancient writers are consistent with this reasoning, of which the first is about the ancient dwelling of the Slavic peoples in Asia, unanimous with the European originating from them. ”
Ants are ancient Slavic tribes. An interesting version is here Ants and Aztecs
The word anta echoes the name of the Slavic Ainu tribe, who founded what is now called the ancient culture of Japan (Yamatai, in the Ainu language “I ma ta i” – a place where the sea cuts the land), and China, and subsequently absorbed by Asian nomadic tribes. More details
The program painting by Ilya Glazunov “Eternal Russia” (pictured), which was once seen by crowds of Muscovites and visitors, was originally called “One Hundred Centuries”. The term is counted from the expected outcome of the ancient Aryans from their ancestral home, which served as the beginning of the collapse of the primary ethnolinguistic community and the emergence of independent peoples and languages (previously the language was common). The symbol of the former ancestral home – the polar World Mountain, located in the upper left corner – opens the visual row on the composition of Glazunov.
The Polar World Mountain, the ancestral home, appears among many Russian artists.
