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.
