Abstract

 

The Leviathans in the Television Series ‟Supernatural”

The paper is an attempt to describe leviathans appearing in “Supernatural” TV series in ref­erence to their archetype known from Judeo-Christian tradition. Originally they were portrayed as a fearsome sea monsters which had extraordinary strength. Leviathans known from “Supernatural” are seemingly showing only slight resemble to monsters known from holy scriptures or legends. They look like people and — if they want to — they can blend in and behave like a normal mortal. However, they have a lot in common with archaic image of this monsters: cruelty, brutality and arro­gance that leviathans manifest to the human kind make them the epitome of chaos and the example of original Evil.
