Lectures for PhD and dissertation students studying philosophy and sciences at ANAS Institute of Folklore continue. On the 29th April in 2024 the head of the Department of Mythology Doctor of Philological Sciences, Professor Seyfeddin Rzasoy gave a lecture on the theme “Kitabi-Turkman Language Oghuzname”. It was stated in the lecture that both “The Book of Dede Gorgud” epic and the “Kitabi-Turkman Language Oghuzname” are directly written images of the oral epic “Dede Gorgud”. Most importantly, while “The Book Dede Gorgud” is an epic, “Kitabi-Turkman Language Oghuzname” is not an epic according to its functional typology, but an esoteric sacred book of Turkmen / Turkmen.

The professor analyzed the 3 versions of the manuscript “Kitabi-Turkman Language Oghuzname” published by different scholars in Turkey in a comparative manner with the epic “Dede Gorgud” and mentioned that genres such as “boy”, “soy”, “yum” are transmedial information units about the ritual-mythological semantics of lineages.

The lecture was accepted with interest by the audience and the scientist answered questions related to the topic.
