What does BIES mean?
- Bies or bes was an evil spirit or demon in Slavic mythology. The word is synonymous with chort. After the acceptance of Christianity the bies became identified with the devil, corresponding to the being referred to in Ancient Greek, as either daimon, daimónion or pneuma. For example, biesy is used in the standard Russian translation of Mark 5:12, where we have the devils entering into the swine in KJV. Compare to the Ukrainian bisy or bisytysia.
