The dictionary Slavic Antiquities is the first attempt at compiling an encyclopedic dictionary on the traditional spiritual culture of all the Slavic peoples. It sums up more than a century's studies of the Slavic languages, folklore, mythology, ethnography, folk art. The Slavs have retained ancient archaisms in their languages, rites, beliefs and customs, unlike other Indo-European peoples that are akin to them, so Slavic data are of great significance for the reconstruction of the Indo-European linguistic and cultural antiquities.

The book is designed for professionals and wide range of readers.
