It’s very important to research the myth of empire and mode which the myth of empire was actualized in early XXI century and how this myth functions now. There are a lot of countries in the Europe which position themselves as the Empire or inheritors of the Empires. All of these countries pretend to the political, cultural and economic domination in the Europe now. This process takes place after The Fall of the Berlin Wall and after many years in The European Union. This paradox fact is very interesting for scientific understanding.

Where are roots of Empire's Myth? What is a cause of Empire's myth actualization in contemporary culture?

The theory of cultural and political myth by R. Bart, M. Eliade, K. Gadjiev and E. Meletinsky would play the role of theoretic and methodology foundation for the myth of Empire cognition. According to these scientists, The Empire's myth is the narrative about Empire. Key idea consists in the statement that all contemporary European countries inherit the territory and myth's consciousness of early Empires in European History. The myth of Empire is narrative about that Empire's land where ancestors lived. That Empire of ancestors does not exist in the real everyday life, but the myth of Empire continues to live in the minds and in the imagination of the descendants, our contemporaries. The myth of early European Empires has got actualization by an art of early times and by contemporary art. Now that myth strengthened and distributed by new electronic and digital media. Functions of that myth consist in the explication and the interpretation of the historical past of people and in the design and the programming of the future. In all myths about the historical evolution of states the Golden age is always in the past, in the time of ancestors, in the period of Empire.
