Over the next few weeks, I shall be writing a series of articles about pre-Christian European "religions" or spiritual practices as well as their cultures. The purpose of these articles is two-fold.
Firstly, I wish to inform people about the spiritual practices of our ancestors and how their spiritual beliefs informed everything they did, that it was a natural outgrowth of who they were and where they lived. In as much as I must promote these traditions and discuss how Christianity came to supplant them, it is not my intention to insult or offend Christians, as we owe our primary loyalty to our blood above any creed and we must not let ourselves be divided along such grounds.
Secondly I want to point out their importance to modern people of European heritage, as even though we may hold other faiths or no faith at all, it is our heritage and our very blood leads us to look at the world in much the same way as our forebears. Therefore, an understanding of the ways our ancestors lived, thought and acted will help you embrace and celebrate your racial identity.
The first article will be on the Germanic cultures, which will be followed by Celtic, Slavic and Balkan and any others that I can research.
