Heathenry is one of the fastest growing, polytheistic religious movements today. This book explores the cosmology, values, ethics and rituals practised by modern heathens. In A MODERN GUIDE TO HEATHENRY readers will have the opportunity to explore the sacred stories of the various heathen gods like Odin, Frigga, Freya and Thor and will be granted a look into the devotional practices of modern votaries. Blóts, the most common devotional rites, are examined in rich detail with examples given for personal use. Additionally, readers are introduced to the concept of wyrd or fate, so integral to the heathen worldview. Unlike many books on heathenry, this one is not denomination-specific nor does it seek to overwhelm the reader with unfamiliar Anglo-Saxon or Norse terminology. For pagans who wish to learn more about the Norse deities or those who are new to heathenry or who are simply interested in learning about this unique religion, A MODERN GUIDE TO HEATHENRY is the perfect introduction. Those who wish to deepen their own devotional practice will find this book helpful in their own work as well.
