Ancient Teachings of the Mystical Slavs Made Simple
Long time ago, before the arrival of Christianity, the native faith of the Slavic tribes that lived in Central and Eastern Europe was the Slavic religion.
At the turn of the 1st millennium AD, the original faith of the Slavs was replaced by Christianity. A great purge ensued, where the native faith, spiritual artefacts and the ancient Slavic writing were burned or destroyed.
The doing away of the past was made easier by the fact that the Slavs did not create great empires, opulent cities, or critical commerce arteries /trade routes. For the most part, the Slavs lived within the bounds of nature and did not care to step beyond it.
Over one thousand years have passed since the beginning of the Christianization of the Slavs, and much has been forgotten.
Silence befell upon the Slavs and their intricate world of myths, and legends.
