Maxims

  • Polytheism is based on the definition that while the divine = nature, nature ≠ unity, but nature = diversity; nature is not one, but many, and thus the divine is plural.
  • The definition of Germanic polytheism is sacrifice to the Gods.
    • Polytheism is a philosophy or a form of theism chiefly centered on blood sacrifice.
  • The Gods are present or invoked at the sacrifice in order to guide the sacrificial victim, usually an animal.
  • Animals are messengers of the Gods and therefore they should be looked at for omens.
  • Dreams or imagination may help reconstruct or bring blood sacrifice back to life.
  • Latin played a significant role in the decline of Germanic folk religion.
  • English plays a significant role in the revival of Germanic folk religion.
  • Germanic polytheism belongs to Germanic tradition, which is a category of its own, which is separate from the categories to which the world’s largest religions belong.
  • The polytheism-defining Gods, to which is sacrificed by polytheists, are indistinct from souls or spirits.
  • Germanic polytheism is one, and so the Frisian religious tradition is but a strand of Germanic polytheism.
    • Frisian religion cannot be seen as anything else than merely an expression of Germanic polytheism.
