Educational activity “Ancient and Medieval Lithuanian Faith

Educational activity “Ancient and Medieval Lithuanian Faith” is intended for pupils of 3rd to 6th grades, who will learn about the most important aspects of Lithuanian mythology: gods and goddesses, sanctuaries, rituals.

During this educational activity, visitors will be introduced to the hierarchy and diversity of Lithuanian mythological figures. Other important topics of classes include the role of rulers and priests (kriviai, vaidelotai, vaidilutės) in ancient and medieval Baltic society and the reconstruction of Pagan sanctuaries. Finally, the revival of traditional ethnic religion (the Neopagan movement) in today’s Lithuania will be discussed.

After the theoretical part, pupils will be divided into two groups: the first group will draw a Pagan sanctuary, while the second group will draw the selected characters (rulers, priests, common people) who are taking part in archaic religious rituals in that sanctuary. Then, the figures of the characters will be attached to the painting of the Pagan sanctuary. The result will be a joint effort, to which every pupil contributed.
