At The Norroena Society we are dedicated to the thorough and proper investigation of the ancestral traditions of Northern Europe as well as the promotion of our results and expansion of the Asatru faith. We feel that we can maintain a strong institution of higher learning based upon a logical and spiritual understanding of the traditions of our ancestors.
The Sedian Tradition
Epicist MethodologyWe utilize Epicism as our principal method of reconstructing the ways of our ancestors and developing a truly religious belief system. We utilize the Epic Method, which builds upon the premise that the Poetic Edda and Skaldic Poetry, being pre-Christian, are our primary texts documenting the beliefs of our ancestors.
Tradition & Spirituality
Our reconstruction efforts are built upon three tiers: Tradition, Religion, and Spirituality. Let each come to the path in their own way and at their own level. As practitioners rebuilding the ancient ways, we seek to reclaim our Northern European heritage and that which has been lost to the sands of time.
Within the doctrine of immanence, we believe that the spiritual world pervades our physical world. We believe that our Gods created this world and the cosmology within which it rests, including the Divine, exist subject to logical principles.

Norroena Society's Mission
Our society is made up of loyal men and women who work as a synergistic whole to bring you a well researched and purely Sedian body of customary beliefs. It is our mission to record, for the most part, rather than interpret the traditions of our ancestral path and we feel that we have the means to do so correctly. Interpretation is for the individual; it is up to each and every one of us to find the logic within our beliefs that fits one's own way without violating our laws.
Learn about the various schools of thought which corrupted and bastardized our ancient belief systems. By understanding the intentions of these methodologies, we have been able to develop a means of purifying our sacred lore and reconstruct our religion, tradition and spirituality. Watch a 6 part series, which takes a deep look at how and why these schools of thought developed.Learn More
