Many people in Reconstructionist groups enjoy dressing in period costume, trying traditional crafts or foods or games or combat styles, and so on. Some gain spiritual satisfaction from doing so--and besides, it can be a lot of fun. But our religions are meant to be meaningful to us, here and now. We're modern people, with modern-day concerns: we can never be Egyptians of 1300 BC, or Vikings of 800 AD, or Romans of 100 AD--nor should we try.

Many people in Reconstructionist groups enjoy dressing in period costume, trying traditional crafts or foods or games or combat styles, and so on. Some gain spiritual satisfaction from doing so--and besides, it can be a lot of fun. But our religions are meant to be meaningful to us, here and now. We're modern people, with modern-day concerns: we can never be Egyptians of 1300 BC, or Vikings of 800 AD, or Romans of 100 AD--nor should we try. Furthermore, there are some aspects of ancient cultures that really should not be brought back, such as slavery and human sacrifice. But we believe that our ancient religions, and the cultures of which they were integral parts, do contain much that is deeply true for us now, and that should be brought back into the world.

About Author:

The Troth was founded by Edred Thorsson and James Chisholm on December 20, 1987, as The Ring of Troth.

The Troth is an international Heathen organization based in the United States and is a non-profit corporation registered in the state of Texas. Additionally, The Troth is recognized by the state of New York as a 501(c)(3) non-profit religious organization.

The Troth does not support any misuse of Germanic religion and culture to advance causes of racism, white supremacy, or any other form of discrimination. Membership in the Troth is open to all who seek to know and honor the Gods, ancestors, and values of the pre-Christian Germanic traditions, regardless of gender, race, nationality, or sexual orientation.

The Troth is proud to include some of Heathenry's best authors and musicians in our ranks. Their work ranges from fiction and poetry, to basic works on Heathen religion, to academic publications. We've set up this page to showcase the work of current members. If you're a Troth member in good standing and would like to be listed here -- or if you're not a member, or for any other reason don't want to be listed here -- please send the relevant information to troth-questions@thetroth.org.

Please note that these books and recordings are not official Troth publications. They do not necessarily represent the positions of the Troth, or the opinions of all members. Nonetheless, we are proud that our members have contributed so much to the Heathen revival. We haven't listed every work by every author or artist, but have focused on those that are likeliest to be of interest to the Heathen community.
