La Mythologie Slave

Leave a comment

La MYTHOLOGIE SLAVE a une base commune avec la Réligion Germano/Scandinave, Celte et Grecque.

Tout a commencé grâce à un groupe Indo-Européen, un groupe linguistique d’où descend tous les Européens actuels. C’est également l’aube de la réligion Païenne, les Hommes et les Shamans de cette époque ont découvert les Dieux, ils sont “rentrés en contact” avec eux et ils ont mis des noms aux Esprits qu’ils vénèraient déjà et qui, jusqu’alors, étaient représentés par des animaux sacré.

La Nature est très importante et on vénère les Roches, les Forêts (dans la forêt on rencontre certaines créatures magiques communes dans la Mythologie Slave et celle Nordique, comme les Elfes, les bons et les mauvais Esprits) et c’est ainsi que les Arbres sont vénérés pour leurs guérisons miraculeuses,mais aussi grâce au fait que  l’Arbre reste surtout le” fil conducteur” vers les Dieux et SWARGA (Le monde des Dieux).  More

Slavic symbols


Many differents symbols in all times in Pagan Times was very used!

One of most important was the Solar Symbol for the God of Sun: Dadzbog, with so many symbols like SWASTIKA (who it’s not nazi symbols but used in all Europe since beginning of history and it is strongly emphasized that this symbol is for Religion!)

SWASTIKA or SUNWHEEL was and is again so important in Slavic Faith but in all Pagan Religion in Europe and exist since 10 000 years! In Slavic countries first Swastika found is more of 6000 years old!!! it means good favor of gods, the quest for success, victory in battle, good yields. Like some pagan celebrations that will last until today, despite Christianity, Pagan symbols are still used in many countries.

In Russia two symbols was so important for Sun (the HORSE, was a sacred animals and the ROOSTER too). These 2 symbols from the Scythian art, which shows again a close link between them and Slavs! The symbol of the Rooster is fundamental and it will last longer than others. They are found in Embroidery and lace of Russia and the Balkans.

RECE BOGA is a proto Slavic symbol of the Slavic Faith (the Hands of God), it’s 4 hands (with 3, 5 or 6 fingers) stylised in a cross and often represented with 4 Solar symbols (Swastika) between the hands… The 4 Hands represent the 4 directions of a suprem God but no gods are represented with 4 hands … so maybe it can only be a sacred symbol Slave with a wrong name …. Great symbol used in all Slavic Territory!

The world for Slavic believers was represented like a TREE or like 3 LEVELS with in the top Gods, in the center, Humans people and the last level for the world of Dead. 3 words to explain the differents levels are Praw, Yaw and Naw.

Perun was the God of Warriors and lightning and in the last years of Paganism the most important God! three symbols are identified for him and they protect people against ligthning and bad things in life. One of these is the AXE TALISMAN who represent the weapon of Perun.(like the Hammer of Thor)

SWARZYCA it’s a great Slavic Pagan Symbol or maybe Proto Slavic! like Hand of God it’s a pure Slavic Symbol. The carved Swarzyca appear in a wall stone of a collegiate church at Kruszwica in Poland and it certainly a part from an ancient Slavic Temple in Poland destroyed.

It’s not really a symbol but I need to show MASKS of an important celebration as DZIADY. these MASKS are used during the Ritual when Spirits of the underworld come back on Earth. It’s the good day for them to visit us and their Families but at the place of celebration, humans can’t look them except Slavic “Priests” with these Masks to look like spirits too. It’s a really important thing!

TRISKEL means many things so it’s why it’s an important Symbol like the others (Past, Present, Future), (Standbuy, Sleep, Dream), (Childhood, Adulthood, Old Age), (Sky, Air, Land) it’s also the symbol for communication with the divine 3 levels.

Many more Symbols are used in Slavic Countries for differents Gods or other but here are the most important and today in the come back of our Faith we need to wear them with Honor like our Ancestors!!!
