    Take everything with a grain of salt It s useful from a Heathen perspective, but far from perfect Also the writing quality varied sometimes it was entertaining and other times it felt like I was never going to finish the chapter.


  3. Todd Keyser Todd Keyser says:

    The better of the two volumes as this one leansto the scholarly side and less conjecture and unsupported opinions.

    I purchased and read the entire series Very disappointing While there was a plethora of accurate information, and some neat Old Norse charms, etc it s just this weird, watered down, re constructionist version of the old religion Definitely worth a read, but not something to base a potent religious system on.

    Extensive and well researched, I found the book enlightening, I learned many things about my ancestor s religion and way of life I did not know I also feel a deeper connection with my ancestral heritage.The book needs a good editor, though Many glaring typos exist, the arrangement of certain chapters felt odd to me The typography wasn t bad but it could have used a touch from a good typographer.The scope of the book felt impressive and I appreciate the extensive source material references at Extensive and well researched, I found the book enlightening, I learned many things about my ancestor s religion and way of life I did not know I also feel a deeper connection with my ancestral heritage.The book needs a good editor, though Many glaring typos exist, the arrangement of certain chapters felt odd to me The typography wasn t bad but it could have used a touch from a good typographer.The scope of the book felt impressive and I appreciate the extensive source material references at the back of the book what they cutely named the book hoard.At times the book felt like a slog, presenting a wide array of researched information on each topic I don t think this was bad since their stated goal was to present this information with as much historically researched knowledge as possible but it felt like the author s also got bored writing at certain times A good editor and some light restructuring might help.I very much liked the final chapter on the thews virtues

    Wer sich hierzulande dem Thema moderne heidnische Religion oder satr n hern m chte, hat es nicht leicht, geeignete Literatur zu finden Die sp rlichen akademischen Ver ffentlichungen sind dem Laien eher schwer zug nglich und zeichnen oft ein verzerrtes Bild des Neuheidentums Unter den Publikationen aus neuheidnischen Kreisen selbst findet man neben reichlich wunschtr umerischer Esoterik zwar auch die eine oder andere Perle aber ein wirklich umfassendes Grundlagenwerk lag bis dato nicht vo Wer sich hierzulande dem Thema moderne heidnische Religion oder satr n hern m chte, hat es nicht leicht, geeignete Literatur zu finden Die sp rlichen akademischen Ver ffentlichungen sind dem Laien eher schwer zug nglich und zeichnen oft ein verzerrtes Bild des Neuheidentums Unter den Publikationen aus neuheidnischen Kreisen selbst findet man neben reichlich wunschtr umerischer Esoterik zwar auch die eine oder andere Perle aber ein wirklich umfassendes Grundlagenwerk lag bis dato nicht vor.F r den anglo amerikanischen Raum haben Kveld lf Gundarsson und die Organisation The Troth mit der Herausgabe von Our Troth hier unsch tzbare Pionierarbeit geleistet Ohne das Rad neu zu erfinden, hat Kurt Oertel als konkurrenzloser Kenner der Materie sich des Materials angenommen und es akribisch bersetzt, auf den neuesten Stand gebracht und, nicht zuletzt, an die hiesigen Verh ltnisse angepasst.Entstanden ist dabei ein optisch ansprechender Band, der inhaltlich so umfassend ist wie kein zweites Werk mit diesem speziellen Themenschwerpunkt Der Bogen reicht dabei von den theoretischen Grundlagen Arch ologie, Geschichte, Mythologie ber die Wiederkehr heidnisch religi ser Vorstellungen in der Neuzeit, bis hin zu einer Darstellung der aktuellen Situation des gelebten Heidentums international und insbesondere im deutschsprachigen Raum.Hier finden Neugierige ohne jegliches Vorwissen ebenso wie lange praktizierende satr Anh nger einen reichen Quell an Information Der Text ist allgemein f r jedermann verst ndlich, aber auch Angeh rige der akademischen Zunft m ssen die Lekt re nicht scheuen, steht er doch auf sicheren quellenkundlichen F en satr Die R ckkehr der G tter ist damit zweifelsohne das lang ersehnte Standardwerk in Sachen neues Heidentum, an dem sich alle bisherigen und k nftigen artverwandten Ver ffentlichungen werden messen lassen m ssen und das auf jeden Fall in keiner heidnischen B chersammlung fehlen darf.Falls sie wirklich jemals fort waren dieses Buch beweist Die alten G tter sind zur ck

    I would give 3.5 starts if it would be an option.The book basically consists of two parts The first part is EXCELLENT work of historical background, and separated chapters of Gods Deities creatures the people of the Norse believed in If it would be only this part, I would have given it 5 starts.Then the second part of the book I mostly skippedThey basically tell you how you HAVE TO be a practitioner, according to them Without having any historical records of the rituals, assemblies, etc, th I would give 3.5 starts if it would be an option.The book basically consists of two parts The first part is EXCELLENT work of historical background, and separated chapters of Gods Deities creatures the people of the Norse believed in If it would be only this part, I would have given it 5 starts.Then the second part of the book I mostly skippedThey basically tell you how you HAVE TO be a practitioner, according to them Without having any historical records of the rituals, assemblies, etc, they should becarefull claiming what and how you HAVE TO do

    An amazing compilation of academic studies of Norse Heathen mythology and revivalist religion The text covers everything that either the newcomer to Heathenry or the well verse and seasoned Asatruar may ever wish or need to know.The assessment of the myths, symbolism and deities compiled here is likely to be the most well balanced and academically accurate that you are liable to find in any library.
