Wotanism

Wotanism

There are three primary Saxon deities – each of which is the head of another Trypt-Arch of Gods (so nine gods in total). The number nine is sacred to Wotanic followers

Hávamál

The key teachings are taught through the poetic verse of the Hávamál (this has never been written down in any Greek or Roman texts, and if it exists in the Runic form; the Saxons never speaks of it to outsiders)

It has several key sections

Gestaþáttr – deals with how to behave properly when travelling or a guest
wíflufu gefeccan -the ‘Love Quests’ deals with the correct interactions when dealing with Women
Loddfáfnir – Ethics
Rúnatal – On runes and knowledge
Ljóðatal – Songs and charms

The Gods

Wōden – Chief God of War
Thunaer – Son of Wotan, God of Thunder and Lightning
Frigg – Goddess of Love

Saexnōt – God of the Saxon People and Family (all those who would be King of the Saxons must be able to trace a direct lineage back to him)
Wade – God of the sea
Eoster – Goddess of Birth and Fertility, the Ēosturmōnaþ is one of the most important celebrations in the Saxon year

Wayland – God of metal working
Irmmen – God of Magic and mysteries (also patron God of the Fenrisget; they never say his name, calling him instead “The Lord of the Black Sun”)
Hel – Goddess of Death and the dead

conversion to Christianity

For a Saxon to convert to Christianity he must renounce these three

in Old Saxon: End ec forsacho allum dioboles uuercum and uuordum, Thunaer ende Uuôden ende Saxnôte ende allum thêm unholdum thê hira genôtas sint

Modern English _ I renounce all the deeds and words of the devil, Thunear, Wōden and Saexnōt, and all those fiends that are their companions_
