On Pan-European Paganism

Also referred to as Folkish Ásatrú/Odinism, Ôðalism, Heathenry or simply the European Religion. All of Europe had a common religion with slightly different interpretations among the Euro-Tribes with of course linguistic variants. For example, in Norway there are so many regional dialects that one can better understand someone from Sweden or Denmark than a person from another village.

Germanic Heathenry is called Asatru (God-Faith).

Slavic Heathenry is called Rodnovery (Slavic Native Faith).

Lithuanian Heathenry is called Romuva (The Temple).

Finnish Heathenry is called Suomenusko (Finnish Faith).

Latvian Heathenry is called Dievturi (God-Keepers).

Prussian Heathenry is called Druwi (The Faith).

Estonian Heathenry is called Maausk meaning “Native Faith”along with another variant called Taarausk meaning “Taara Faith”.

Celtic Heathenry is called Celtic Reconstructionism.

Note: There are many other tribal, ethnic and national forms of European Paganism such as Urglaawe (Pennsylvania Dutch Heathenry), Wodenism (English Heathenry), Irminism (Esoteric Germanic Heathenry) and Theodism (Anglo-Saxon Tribal Heathenry). However, we focus on Wotanism (and see Odalism as a form of Wotanism) as our common Pan-European Pagan religion.
