Hartmann (Hans): Was ist ‘Wahrheit’? (1).
In ZCP 49–50 (1997), pp. 287–310.
Establishes several coincidences between Irish folk-belkiefs and Proto-Indo-Iranian religion, especially regarding the cult of the dead and the binary opposition right : left, with the moral connotations associated to it (good : evil). Discusses in particular the concept of truth (represented by OIr. fír, fírinne, fír flathemon) and its role as the bedrock of sovereignty.
