Bog (Slavic for god) is the etymon of the large number of names of deities joined to this syllable, as Czernebog, Ipabog, etc. Bog-Triglaw seems to have been pre-eminently worshipped as supreme god by the Slavonic nations. However, as there has been found not the least trace of a representation of this god among the monuments of the Wendian, and especially none among those of the Obotritian, heathens which were found in the early part of the 17th century near Prilwiz, in Mecklenburg-Strelitz, on the site of the ancient famous Rethra, the capital of the Obotrites, it is thought that Bog-Triglaw was an unknown god, and, as his worship did not promise immediate temporal blessings, he was worshipped very meagrely.
