Odroerir: The Heathen Journal


Odroerir is a downloadable journal dedicated to developing, fostering, and distributing scholastic literature regarding the various pre-Christian religious traditions and cultures of Northern Europe.

Odroerir’s goal is to bridge the gap between academic knowledge of ancient heathen religion and the implementation and reconstruction of traditions today. To achieve this goal, our articles are peer reviewed by academics specializing in the field of Old Norse Religion to make sure that arguments and information on modern or historical heathenism are sound and in line with ‘what we know’ of historical heathenism, and to help contributors find new sources that might be of value for their articles. Articles describing modern practices are careful to distinguish themselves from historical heathenism, and do not extend the validity of described rituals or customs beyond that of the group in a given article.
