mythology meme ┘ one mythology: slavic

Unlike Greek, Indian or Egyptian mythology, there are no first-hand records for the study of Slavic mythology — it has not been proven that the Slavs had any sort of writing system before 826; therefore all their original religious beliefs and traditions were likely passed down oraly over generations, and basically forgotten over the centuries following their rapid conversion into Christianity. Old Slavic religion evolved over more than a thousand years, the Earth was worshipped as Mat Zemlya and there were no temples; rituals were performed in nature.
