Abstract

The author presents the results of his research into one of forgotten source materials in the field of religion in Slavic studies, the story “Quomodo zabulus...” from the collection “De miraculis” (1178–1180) by Herbert of Clairvaux. The analysis of the copy leads to the conclusion that it shows the beliefs of the tribes of frontal Pomerania as well as their confrontation with Christianity on the eve of the battle of Dymino (1164) which put an end to Paganism in this faction of western Slavs.
