Gothi & Gytha and their Hofs: Heathen Priests & Priestesses and their Temples

A night on the Gemanic pagan priesthood and heathen rituals.

Pete Jennings reconsiders the sources of Iceland, Anglo-Saxon England and Scandinavia. Some of the best known textual evidence is re-examined (such as the Icelandic Sagas, Bede, Snorri Sturlusson and the Anglo Saxon Chronicle), and some less-known evidence is presented, such as Constantine VII, Tacitus and Adam of Bremen. He brings some new interpretations, so those who know this subject will be in for a surprise or two. Pete Jennings is a practising heathen of many years standing whose approach to historical material is avowedly reconstructionist. His work and approach give one example of how modern pagans strive to come to terms with historical evidence and make it their own, for a spiritual life grounded in the present. Pete Jennings is High Gothi of Odinshof, ex-president of the Pagan Federation and author of eleven published books. More on www.gippeswic.demon.co.uk.
