WhileMoreA collection of passages from literature reflecting the pre-Christian Germanic world-view, arranged topically with commentary by the authors. This book draws on the Poetic and Prose Eddas, some of the Icelandic sagas, and Old English poetry. While this literature was generally written down after the conversion to Christianity, it still reflects a good deal of the ethos and world-view of the Germanic heroic age. Readers looking for inspiration from the past in dealing with present-day situations, as well as those simply interested in the world-view of their distant ancestors, will enjoy this sampler of medieval literature. While the authors have attempted to make their work compatible with mainstream heathen thought, it is not meant only for people who consider themselves Asatru or Germanic heathen. If you speak English, you are an heir to the ancient Germanic culture explored in these pages.
