The native residents of Kraków want Światowid to become the patron of the square near Wawel. Currently, the square is nameless, but there is a copy of a sculpture found in the 19th century from the Zbrucz River and placed in the Archaeological Museum in Krakow. According to the authors of the petition, Światowid “is a specific testimony of the intermingling of pre-Christian beliefs with the new religion already in the first centuries of Christianization.”
Cracow. The native believers want Światowid Square near Wawel
Światowid for a stone sculpture fished out of the Zbrucz River in 1848, and three years later, for example, in the Archaeological Museum in Krakow. To celebrate the 170th anniversary of this event, the native believers suggested that the nameless square near Wawel, with a copy of the sculpture on the subject, be called Światowida. For this purpose we created an online petition, and the signature under it gave more than 80 people. The petitioners argue that Światowid was probably created in the 11th century, and its creator had already had contact with the art of early Russian Christianity, therefore it is centuries old “a specific testimony to the intertwining of previous beliefs with the new religion in the first Christianization”.

The sculpture of Światowid was previously identified with the image of Świętowit, i.e. the god of Słowbskis. Currently, this view, which is meaning to be erroneous, is being discussed by researchers on various issues regarding the dowry. One of them assumes that Światowid represents not one, but four Slavic deities. According to this interpretation, the dowry includes: Łada, Mokosz, Perun and Dażbóg.
