Note Editore

This book offers a radical reinterpretation of the Slavic pagan religion made onthe basis of a thorough re-examination of all reliable sources. What did Slavic pagan religion have in common with the Afro-American cult of voodoo? Why were no Slavic gods mentioned before the mid-tenth century, and why were there no Slavic gods at all between the Dnieper and the Oder? Why were Slavic foundation legends similar to the totemic myths of the nomadic peoples of theEurasian Steppe, and who were Slavic Remus and Romulus? What were the Indo-European roots of Slavic hippomantic rituals, and where wasthe Eastern Slavic dragon Zmey Gorynych born? Answers to these and many other provocative questions can be found in this book.
