Kapishche
 
 
Temples of Slavs. Word about the device Of [kapishcha] Russian word “[Kapishche]” - most likely, derivative of the Slav root “of [skep]”: to [skepati] - to chop; [skapanoe] ([skepanoe]) - cut, [tesanoe] (passage “e” in “and” it is connected with the influence of the [akayushchego] talk). Here we meet with direct indication that the material, from which were built Old-Russian sanctuaries, was tree.
