" Swantewit" is the name of the Slavic SunGod. From this name is derived that of St. Vitus. It was customary to hold a festival in honor of this Slavonic God on the loth of June (the present St. Vitus day), at which time the people performed a wild dance around a sacred fire (Swantewit), and from this has arisen the name given to a disease which broke out in Germany in the Uth century and was called the St. Vitus dance, and for the healing of which the people called upon St. Vitus. The people kept up this dance until they fell down utterly exhausted. It is said that there are to be found no more of tlie original melodies used for this dance.
