The Encyclopedia of Uralic Mythologies offers a comparative base for study of the roots and present forms of Finno-Ugrian and Samoyedic mythologies and ethnic religions.
The peoples speaking the Uralic languages are indigenous peoples of Northern Eurasia in the territory extending from Fennoscandia to Taimyr Peninsula. Along with their complicated histories and cultural differencies, Uralic groups have maintained and created original religious and mythological traditions, where traces of archaic religious systems, e.g. shamanism, animal ceremonialism and astral mythology, merged with ancient foreign influences and more recent religions.
