Mouguias (Cristobo) has sent me the original Asturian and an English translation of The Golden Thread: Religion and identity in Asturian oral tradition, a paper he delivered in Ponga early in 2009. He has has offered it for any Asturian-Americans interested in reading it. See below for links.

I'll post a couple of paragraphs here.

The Golden Thread:
Religion and identity in Asturian oral tradition

Cristobo de Milio Carrín, February 2009


Asturian myths and legends hold lots of information about our past which hardly has been explored. How many questions might be answered through the research of our myths?

Among the many myths of Asturias there is one which stands for its beauty – the Golden Thread. It tells of a casual traveler who walks by a well and finds, floating over the water, a golden thread. He holds the end and starts to wind it, but the thread is very long and the man doesn`t manage to finish the ball. When he is close to the end of his task the thread tears and then a voice is heard from the well, the voice of the “xana” (faery) whose was the thread. She laments that with only one more winding he would have earned a treasure but now, Alas! He has lost it altogether.

Mouguias (Cristobo) me ha enviado el original en asturiano y una traducción a inglés de El Filu d`Oru: Relixón ya Identidá na Tradición Oral Asturiana, un documento que pronunció en Ponga a principios de 2009. Se ha ofrecido para cualquier asturamericano interesado en leerlo. Véase más abajo para los enlaces.

Voy a publicar un par de párrafos aquí.

El Filu d`Oru:
Relixón ya Identidá na Tradición Oral Asturiana

Cristobo de Milio Carrín, Febreru 2009


Los mitos y lliendes d`Asturies contienen abonda información sobre el nuesu pasáu que entá nun foi aprovechada. ¿Cuántes entrugues puen respondese al traviés del analís de los nuesos mitos?

Ente los munchos mitos d`Asturies hai ún perguapu, el del filu d`oru. El camineru pasa per xunta una fonte y atopa, flotando nel agua, un filu d`oru. Garra del cabu y entama a endoviellalu, pero el filu ye mui llargu y el camineru nun ye a rematar el oviellu. Cuando ya ta pa acabar el filu rompe, y óyese entós la voz de la xana, diciéndo-y al probe que namás con dar otra vuelta tenía ganáu un tesoru pero que agora, ¡Ay!, perdiólu dafechu.
