Norse Mythology Blog


The Norse Mythology Blog provides original articles and interviews on Norse myth and religion and features projects that estimate current numbers of adherents of the modern iteration of Norse religion.

The Norse Mythology Blog was named the world's Best Religion Weblog in 2012, 2013 and 2014. It is the first religion blog to enter the Weblog Awards Hall of Fame. It provides original articles and interviews by its founder, Dr. Karl E. H. Seigfried—a writer on mythology and religion. A Norse mythologist and musician in Chicago, he teaches courses on mythology, religion, J.R.R. Tolkien and Richard Wagner for Newberry Library's Seminar Program. He taught Norse mythology at Loyola University Chicago and Norse religion at Carthage College, where he was founder and faculty advisor of the Tolkien Society.

Karl is President of Interfaith Dialogue at the University of Chicago, where he also serves as Contact Person for the Ásatrú Student Network.
