Association of Polytheist Traditions


APT Members' Websites

  • Caer Feddwyd
    Caer Feddwyd is primarily a resource for those working within or researching the polytheist Brythonic traditions. You will also find information on other Celtic paganisms and modern Druidry, along with articles, essays and poetry of general interest. There is also a forum, which is intended to serve as both a place of debate and for the submission of materials to the site. This is a place for sharing knowledge, wisdom and inspiration, for teaching, learning and debating.
  • Skvala
    Skvala is an Old Norse word which is related to the English word 'squeal' and means 'to shout, bawl, cry out'. This page is a repository for the squallor of Arlea and Stormerne Hunt-Anschütz. Many of these articles have been published in print media, others have appeared on various websites. Here we gather the majority of our heathen-related articles in one place.
  • Wyrd's Well
    I'm an anthropologist and writer, specialising in Heathenry, shamanism and the practice of seidr - northern european shamanistic community-oriented practice, based in the accounts from the sagas and Eddas, but developed as practice for today, not designed to replicate what can't be replicated. I have a number of articles, and a book on seidhr now available from Routledge - see their catalogue entry for Nine Worlds of Seid-magic: ecstasy and neo-shamanism in north European Paganism.
    See also the Sacred Sites, Contested Rights project at www.sacredsites.org.uk.
  • Yggdrasil
    Yggdrasil is a Heathen group in the West of Scotland. All Heathens (and those interested in Heathenry) who respect the right of others to be Heathen regardless of sexuality, gender, or ethnicity or 'race' are welcome at our moots.

Historical Information on Gods and Goddesses

  • Germanic Goddesses
    This is intended as a lore reference site for anyone studying or researching Germanic goddesses. The author has tried to provide what little 'objective' evidence we have about these goddesses, which consists mainly of quotes from medieval and classicial literature and inscriptions on votive altars.
  • Epona.net
    Examining the evidence for Epona we ask: when and where was she worshipped? How, and by whom? The historical evidence consists of direct evidence - linguistics, dedicatory inscriptions, and written references in literature - and indirect evidence, in the form of archaeological material such as Epona statues, the remains of temples, and so on.

Polytheist Religious Organisations

  • The Julian Society
    The Julian Society is a non-denominational religious order dedicated to the advancement of Pagan religion. Our membership shares many different traditions of Pagan worship while remaining united through the common bond of the ideals the Emperor Julian championed. We continue to carry on the work which Julian began centuries ago; restoring Pagan religion so that it may again take its rightful place as a major world religious system./li>
  • Hellenion
    Welcome to Hellenion, a US-based religious organization dedicated to the revival and practice of Hellenic polytheism. We approach Hellenic religion from the reconstructionist perspective, which includes both an emphasis on historical precedent and respect for personal spiritual inspiration.
  • Nova Roma
    Dedicated to the restoration of Classical Roman religion, culture, and virtues.
  • Collegium Religionis Societatis Viae Romanae
    The Societas Via Romana (Society of the Roman Way) is a multicultural, creative and organic society that celebrates the legacy of the classical world to humanity, especially in its aspects that are still applicable in contemporary life. The Collegium Religionis is dedicated to the historical recreation of the Religio Romana by means of discussion, study, practice and creative expression.
  • The Troth
    Although there are many variations in beliefs and practices within this faith, and many ways of describing and classifying these differences, we all share a defining personal loyalty to, or "Troth" with, the gods and goddesses of the Northlands, such as Odin, Thor, Frigga, and many others. We have a deep respect for our Germanic religious, cultural and historical heritage while at the same time welcoming all who hear the call of our gods, whatever their background.

Polytheist Mailing Lists and E-Groups

  • Britpoly
    A group primarily for British pagans following reconstructionist faiths, whether Roman, Heathen, Kemetic or any other. The group aims to provide a space for those who have a relationship with one particular pantheon of gods (whichever pantheon that may be), and to live their lives according to the culture and mythology attaching to that pantheon. Britpoly also welcomes polytheists who have relationships with various gods from different pantheons.
  • UKheathenry
    This list is set up to facilitate networking and contact, relevant announcements, and discussion within UK Heathenry (including Elder Troth, Asatru, Norse, Germanic or Saxon Paganism, Northern Traditions, etc.) It is open to all who are drawn to the Aesir and Vanir, the Disir, and/or the LandSpirits, and who want to network with other Heathens. Restrictions on membership: you live in the UK or close-by areas of Europe; you respect the right of other list-members to be Heathen, regardless of sexuality, gender, or ethnicity or 'race'.
  • Orna
    This group takes its name from Orna the sword of Ogma, Irish god of language and eloquence. Orna sung of the deeds of its owner.The group is for polytheists following a Celtic Pagan/Druidic path, who live in (or soon hope to be living in) the British Isles or Ireland. The aim is to share experiences, ritual practice, research sources etc. In the future people may be able to meet up, hold conventions and so forth.
