Spiritual culture of the Polovtsians

The spiritual heritage of the Polovtsians was marked with the old, based on totemistic and animistic beliefs, traditions of the Sayan-Altay peoples. Time passed and, under the influence or with significant participation of the Chinese Empire, it developed into a cult of the ancestors, shamanism. That legacy, reaching deep into the history of mankind, which have been influenced by neighbouring, ethnically different nations and their great monotheistic religious doctrines, from which the Polovtsians, according to their own “ethnic” character and inclinations, adapted many rituals and symbols that reflected their visions of the world.
