Europe's Last Pagans

Posted in Religion, because it is religion, but for entertainment and enlightenment. It's RT, so take it how you like it. ;)

In ancient times, people of most ethnic groups used to pray like the Mari El pagans do to this day. These people are so loyal to their gods that their belief survived both the Christian expansion and the ban on all religions during Soviet times. Their ceremonies resemble scenes from Hogwarts, but their religious leader looks nothing like Alan Rickman. Meet Europe's last pagans on RTDoc. Source: RTД

It's amazing this Russian ethnic minority still exists.
