ABSTRACT

References to Slavic pagan religion before the end of the tenth century are found in occasional remarks that Byzantine, Arabic, English, and German authors noted in Greek, Arabic, and Latin. They are found in a variety of literary compositions: three historiographical narratives, a letter, and a travel report. Although brief and fragmentary, the evidence gleaned from these sources covers the entire Slavic world, including the Southern, Eastern, and Western Slavs.
