According to the apostle Boniface (7th century), the Slavs are “the most repugnant and vile of the human races. They lived under a patriarchal government. They sacrificed animals and prisoners, practiced cremation, and accompanied their funerals with feasts and war games. Women were burnt alive on their husband’s pyre” (Larousse du XXe siècle, 1933)
