Motivated by the writings of Guido Von List, the Australian Alexander Rud Mills founded the Anglecyn Church of Odin in 1934. Mills is significant for his expansion on Odinism, soaking it deeper in Nazi ideology and peppering it with Christianity. The expansions he made include:

  • The perception of gods as archetypes
  • The belief that Odin is a father figure who stands above the rest of the gods
  • An attitude of pitting Heathenry against Christianity

Mills was interned for his Nazi sympathies in 1942 but continued to publish works on Odinism until his death in 1964.
