In: Sources of Slavic Pre-Christian Religion
In Sources of Slavic Pre-Christian Religion Juan Antonio Álvarez-Pedrosa presents the original texts as well as English translations of all known medieval sources that inform us about the religion practiced by the Slavs before their Christianization. Since the Slavs did not have a written culture before their conversion to Christianity, all the texts were authored by people who were involved in this long process or in contact with the Slavs. For this reason, the texts come from a lengthy period from the ninth to the fifteenth century. Since the texts were originally written in seven different ancient languages, the present book is the result of the work of a large team of specialists.

Abstract

This chapter collects the texts that the medieval European authors wrote in Latin about the religion of the Slavs: these authors, fundamentally chroniclers, are the main source to know the religion of the Slavs of Central Europe and the Slavs of the Baltic. Also we find ecclesiastical instructions on popular religiosity in Poland during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries where we trace information on the Slavic Pre-Christian religion.
