Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Vainakh people of the North Caucasus include the modern Chechens and Ingush, who are today predominantly Muslim in religion. Nevertheless, their folklore has preserved a substantial amount of information about their pre-Islamic pagan beliefs. Vainakh practiced their own pagan religion, which was a mixture of different cults, including totemism, paganism, animism, polytheism, familial-ancestral and agrarian and funereal cults. K. Sikhuralidze believed that perhaps in the distant past, there was a general culture of the Caucasus. Study Kartvelian and Vainakh mythologies indicates this similarity implicit in the legends of the battles of titans and gods.
