Heathen Wyrdos Podcast - Evil in Heathenry
Manage episode 353835457 series 3336509
WELCOME TO SEASON 3!
This episode we come in like a wrecking ball to demolish the ideas around 'evil' in heathenry. It's not as simple as saying the Aesir are good and the Jotunn are bad. Want to know more? Listen in. Wyrdos Sif, Theo and Kenna discuss the origins of the word evil, and how it shouldn't be used to define or label our Nordic gods.

“Wounded to death, have I seen a man
by the words of an evil woman;
a lying tongue had bereft him of life,
and all without reason of right.”
Völuspá 38-39, Ursula Dronke
Sal sá hón standa
norðr horfa dyrr.
inn um lióra.
Sá er undinn salr
Sá hón þar vaða
ok þannz annars glepr
Þar saug Nidhoggr,
sleit vargr vera.
Vitoð ér enn, eða hvat?
A hall she saw standing
remote from the sun
on Dead Body Shore.
Its door looks north.
There fell drops of venom
in through the roof vent.
That hall is woven
of serpents’ spines.
She saw there wading
and wolfish murderers
and the one who seduces
another’s close-trusted wife.
There Malice Striker (Nidhoggr) sucked
corpses of the dead,
the wolf tore men.
Do you still seek to know? And what?
