ASATRU is a modern Pagan tradition whose roots lie in the ancient myths, folklore, sagas, and historical artifacts of those who lived in pre-Christian times in what is now Iceland, Scandinavia, Scotland, Germany, and other parts of northern Europe. It is also one of the fastest growing religions in the United States and Europe. A clear and accessible introduction to this heathen religion, this book covers all the basics and answers the essential questions about Asatru.
Key topics include:
- A brief exploration of Asatru’s mythology
- The role of Asatru’s gods and goddesses, rituals, magical practices of divination, spells, and berserkrgangr (a form of trance magic)
- The moral virtues of Asatru: courage, honor, loyalty, truth, hospitality, industriousness, self-discipline, self-reliance, and steadfastness
- A look at various interpretations of the Asatru tradition and the “hijacking” of its symbolism over the last two centuries
Erin Lale is the author of Asatru for Beginners (on which this book is based) and other books. She is the former editor and publisher of Berserkrgangr magazine and writes the Pagansquare blog Gnosis Diary: Life as a Heathen.
