Forn Sed

Often known under the name Asatru.

This blog will focus on historical accuracy and reconstructionism but also on the contemporary religion and sometimes wander into other heathenry, like Anglo - Saxon faith, Odinism, Theodism and so on.
There will however never be any bigotry, homophobia, anti Semitism or stupid ideas of a "pure" Germanic race. hello! theme by cissysaurus

In Norse mythology, Gná is a goddess who runs errands in other worlds for the goddess Frigg and rides the flying, sea-treading horseHófvarpnir (Old Norse ”he who throws his hoofs about”, ”hoof-thrower” or “hoof kicker”). Gná and Hófvarpnir are attested in theProse Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. Scholarly theories have been proposed about Gná as a “goddess of fullness” and as potentially cognate to Fama from Roman mythology. Hófvarpnir and the eight-legged steed Sleipnir have been cited examples of transcendent horses in Norse mythology.
