Asatru by Red Wheel/Weiser Publishing

By Erin Lale

A Beginner’s Guide to the Heathen Path

A clear and simple introduction to the history, beliefs, rituals, and gods and goddesses of this popular form of Neo-Pagan belief drawn from ancient northern European traditions.

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, Scandinavian-influenced Scotland, Germany, and other parts of northern Europe. This heathen religion is one of the fastest growing religions in United States and Europe. The book includes these key topics:

  • A brief exploration of Asatru’s mythology and prehistory, its contact with Rome, and its history up to the present day
  • A comprehensive survey of Asatru’s many gods and goddesses
  • The rituals, including holiday celebrations, toasting rituals, weddings, and other life events
  • The moral virtues of a true Asatruar: courage, honor, loyalty, truth, hospitality, industriousness, self-discipline, self-reliance, and steadfastness
  • The magical practices of rune divination, spells, and bersarkrgangr (a form of trance magic)
  • A look at the “universalist” and “folkish” interpretations of the Asatru tradition and the “hijacking” of the symbolism of the northern European religions in the 19th and early 20th centuries

Readers new to Asatru and experts alike will find this book to be an invaluable resource in understanding this heathen tradition.
