Explorations in Norse Paganism


Norse Paganism, also known as Asatru, Norse Heathenry, and Forn Sidr/Forn Sed, is a polytheistic religious tradition that was practiced by the pre-Christian people of Scandinavia, Iceland, and other parts of Northern Europe. It is best known for its pantheon of deities, including Odin, Thor, Freyja, Loki, and other figures. Today, it has experienced a global revival, with many iterations drawing inspiration from the beliefs, customs, superstitions, and folklore of the ancient Norse people.
