EASTERN EUROPEAN/BALTIC MYTHOLOGY MEME > slavic gods and goddesses [3/9]: chernobog Chernobog is a Slavic deity, whose name means “black god”, about whom much has been speculated but little can be said definitively. The only historical sources, which are Christian ones, interpret him as a dark, accursed god, but it is questionable how important or malicious he was really considered to be by ancient Slavs. He is the counterpart of Belobog, the “light god”.

'Svjatogor' by Petar Meseldžija. Svjatogor is a titanic hero-warrior in Russian mythology and folklore. A giant living in the Holy Mountains after which he is named, he and his mighty steed are so large that, when they ride forth, the crest of his helmet sweeps away the clouds. He is the eldest of Russia’s 'Bogatyri', and in many ways He is the saddest. His days of glory are long behind Him, and he is depicted in most epic poems as an old, tired warrior, doomed to fade away...
