The Religion of Ancient Scandinavia: Now Available!




This little booklet is a rather obscure and interesting guide to a few basic concepts within Norse paganism from the semi-academic perspective. With a section on Thor and Odin and another on the rest of the major figures of Northern paganism, it includes a few strange asides about less well known subjects such as the "doom ring" (for human sacrifice) and the "Insult Post" which was a sort of magical totem designed to confuse or dismay land spirits in hopes that they would frown upon and actively hinder the plans and lives of those the post was dedicated to. It speaks a bit about the interplay between the Germanic and the Scandinavian traditions within a linguistic framework as well.
