** This trope is probably also why Turkic-speaking Muslims tend to use the word "Tengri" (which is really just a generic term for god, like the Greek Deus, or the Nordic tyr) along with the prefferred Arabic "Allah" to refer to God.

* The conversions of many formerly pagan areas to Christianity resulted in a lot of this.
** South American Catholics often practice what were originally Inca religious festivals. For example, the parades with the statues of the Holy Family and major saints were originally done with the mummies of Inca kings.
** What little we know of Slavic pagan beliefs comes mostly from extrapolation backwards from records of Slavic/Christian syncretism. The Slavs seem to have initially taken Christianity as simply an ''afterlife'', while still paying obeisance to pagan spirits in day-to-day life.
** Several Afro-Caribbean faiths such as Santeria mix Catholicism with the native religions of imported African slaves (Yoruba in the case of Santeria).

* This concept actually played quite an important role in initially winning over the Turkic and Mongol tribes to Islam, as the belief in Tengri was close enough to an Abrahamic monotheism that Turkic tribes such as the Volga Bulgars were able to look upon Islam and see a basically more refined version of their traditional religion.
** The Mongol ruler Ghazan of the Ilkhanate also converted to Islam and argued that his ancestors' veneration of Tengri was actually a form of Proto-Islamic religion.
** Also employed in the Dastans of Dada Korkut, a collection of sagas regarding Oghuz Hakaan, the mythical father of the Turkic peoples, where it is said that Dada Korkut (a figure similar to Merlin, or Odin) is said to have journeyed to Madinah where he spoke with Muhammad (PBUH) and accepted Islam, carrying that religion back to his people in the steppes. Over time, that belief in Islam was misinterpreted as the worship of the sky god Tengri. It's quite clear that this was added by Turkic chroniclers some time after their conversion to Islam in order to mitigate their pagan past.

** The prequel novels show that the creation of the OCB was far from a peaceful and universally-accepted process. In fact, the people who compiled the book nearly got themselves lynched by the angry mobs. They were only spared when TheEmperor intervened and granted them sanctuary in his palace. That is, until his young daughter caught one of them supposedly raping the Empress (said daughter would later start to suspect that the act may have been consensual). The Emperor then had all the translators publicly executed, making his daughter watch the consequences of her actions. It's not clear when that hatred for the OCB turned into nigh-universal acceptance.
