The Slavic Native Faith, commonly known as Rodnovery, and rarely as Slavic Neopaganism, is a modern Pagan religion. Classified as a new religious movement, its practitioners harken back to the historical belief systems of the Slavic peoples of Central and Eastern Europe, though the movement is inclusive of external influences and hosts a variety of currents.
Given names originating from the Slavic languages are most common in Slavic countries.
Slavičín is a town in the Zlín Region, Czech Republic. It has a population of about 6,500 people.
The Slavic influence on Romanian is noticeable on all linguistic levels: lexis, phonetics, morphology and syntax.
The intercultural process also enriched the Slavic languages, which borrowed Vulgar Latin words and terms from Romanian, a Romance language, as, for example, mezin
The Slavic settlement in the Balkans lasted for almost two centuries - from about 519 to the 8th century. The settlement was favored by the thinning of the population as a result of the Justinian plague.The Slavs who settled in the Balkans are divided into two groups - Sclaveni and Antae.
In Slavic Native Faith there are a number of shared holidays throughout the year, when important ritual activities are set according to shared calendars. Generally speaking, ritual activities may be distinguished into "external" (exoteric) and "internal" (esoteric) relatively to the different communities.
Slavic Native Faith in Russia is widespread, according to some estimates from research organisations which put the number of Russian Rodnovers in the millions. The Rodnover population generally has a high education and many of its exponents are intellectuals, many of whom are politically engaged both in the right and the left wings of the political spectrum.
In its own view of history, Rodnovery is destined to supplant what Rodnovers call the "mono-ideologies", whose final bankruptcy the world is now witnessing. By "mono-ideologies", they mean all those ideologies which promote "universal and one-dimensional truths", unable to grasp the complexity of reality and therefore doomed to failure one after the other.
Slavic Native Faith has a theology that is generally monistic, consisting in the vision of an absolute, supreme God (Rod) who begets the universe and lives as the universe (pantheism and panentheism), present in all its phenomena. Polytheism, that is the worship of the gods or spirits, and ancestors, the facets of the supreme Rod generating all phenomena, is an integral part of Rodnovers' beliefs and practices.
In the Russian intellectual milieu, Slavic Native Faith presents itself as a carrier of the political philosophy of nativism/nationalism/populism (narodnichestvo), intrinsically related to the identity of the Slavs and the broader group of populations with Indo-European origins. The scholar Robert A. Saunders has found that Rodnover ideas are very close to those of Eurasianism, the current leading ideology of the Russian state.
