Paganism & Wicca - Who Are The Kresnik?

The Kresnik of Istria and Slavonia are comparable to the Benandanti in that the caul with which they are born indicates their destined capacity to fight evil "witches." 






  • The kresnik gets hypnotized at night, and a huge black fly emerges from his mouth and travels to shamanic fights. 
  • The vucodlak is the kresnik's natural adversary. Kresniks fight their opponents in the air at crossroads with sticks. 




  • Kresniks are also believed to fight over St Mark's Square in Venice, crossing the sea on eggshells.
  • Kresniks may transform into any animal, although bullocks, goats, and horses are the most popular. 




Also look up Benandanti, Fetch, and Vucodlak.

Paganism & Wicca - What Is A Fetch?

A Fetch is a wraithlike ghost is frequently referred to as a "double," "doppelganger," or "shadow soul" in horror literature


  • The fetch is a human soul that may be taught to leave the body, travel, and return while the shaman is entranced, according to Nordic shamanism. 
  • The fetch appears literally, generally in the shape of a little bug or animal, such as flies, mice, butterflies, or cats, and is more than merely dream-journeying. 
  • The fetch might sometimes resemble the shaman's twin, thus the terms "double" and "shadow."
  • The fetch might represent an individual's animal soul, and the acquiring of many animal forms might constitute shamanic power exhibitions. 
  • Transformational fairy tales might be references to the fetch.
