Matters of faith can be a delicate thing. Especially during the early Middle Ages where written messages are few and far in between. The chronicler Thietmar von Merseburg only mentioned that the Slavs were deifying gods made from wood. The rest has to be told by archeology. During excavations on the ring wall in Raddusch, an oak plank was found in a well pit, the upper part shaped like a head. There had been apparent attempts to destroy it. Fire and axe left traces. That must have been around 935 A.D. when the Germans invaded the Lusatia region repeatedly. An idol? Due to the circumstances of the findings and the age determination, two interpretations are available: Christian conquerors destroyed the cult complex and buried the debris. Oder the Slavic residents themselves attempted to bury the remains of their desecrated sanctum with some dignity. One thing we know for certain is that matters of faith were involved. Since 2003, the figure can be viewed at its find spot in the "Slavic Fort Raddusch".
