Pagan Theology Series

For the next few weeks on the Pagan Portal at Patheos we’re going to be engaging in the discussion of Pagan theology. Who are the Gods? What is their nature? Their origin?

NPT: New Pagan Translation?

Next week we’re taking a look at theology from a Pagan perspective and as a result I’ve been wading through the classics. I’m finding it a bit frustrating, not because I have problems understanding the philosophers and theologians of ancient times, but because the translations seem off. While reading through Sallust’s On The Gods And [Read More...]

Terms of Service- A Little Polemic About Being a Godslave

I am a godatheow –  a godslave. Many of the spiritworkers and shamans that I know are also godslaves, in other words, outright owned by their Deities. It rather goes with the territory and I have found it to be one of the dominant paradigms of service in contemporary Heathenry and Paganism (though not the [Read More...]

Pagan Soup: Demons, Druids and Westboro Baptist

Columbia and The Wicker Man: Embracing The Barbaric?

Over the July 4th weekend several Pagan blogs raised a cry of “Hail Columbia!”. This was met with some mixed reactions, one of the most thought provoking being from Meadowsweet & Myrrh (a blog worth checking out).

Jezebel VS The Daily Show: Pagan Perspective

This morning a story about a war of words between Jezebel and The Daily Show caught my eye in between Warren Buffett acting cute and Lindsay Lohan going to jail. It seemed to suggest The Daily Show was sexist, and as a fan I wanted to get to the bottom of it. So I read [Read More...]

Wyrd Designs: The Havamal ~ Offerings to the Gods, Goddesses, Ancestors and Vaettir

For most followers of the Northern Tradition upon learning about this path they read the myths about the Gods, and many tend to also study the Havamal. The Havamal is one of many sagas found in the Poetic Edda, and many of the stanzas are known as being a depository of advice as it applies [Read More...]

Wyrd Designs – Sigdrifa’s ~ a Prayer and a Song

Sigdrifa’s Prayer is the only surviving, complete,  non-Christianized prayer that exists in the lore. As such it is a precious remnant, but unfortunately a little known gem. It’s nestled in the midst of the Sigdrifumal, one of the heroic lays found in the Poetic Edda. “Hail, day! | Hail, sons of day! And night and [Read More...]
