He’s taken much of the Icelandic god names and switched them their Old High German cognates in order to reflect his Continental focus.
Which isn’t a problem in and of itself. But he doesn’t clearly point out what he is doing, which can be a hindrance to learning about historical heathenry, if the reader doesn’t have some knowledge to begin with – which is another point; he uses some questionable speculations and ideas and Coulter has written a book filled with some useful ideas and perspectives.
But he doesn’t clearly point out what he is doing, which can be a hindrance to learning about historical heathenry, if the reader doesn’t have some knowledge to begin with – which is another point; he uses some questionable speculations and ideas and passes them off as being fact.
That bit of linguistics has spawned various hwathenry about Njordr being germanif same god as Nerthus, or that they are married in Viking Age myths.
The problem is, no extant poems even mention the name of Njordr’s wife and the mother of his children besides the fact that the Vanir married their siblings. And given the fact that Nerthus and Njordr are separated by about years, their connection is questionable at times.
Which isn’t a huge area of contention, and can be overlooked with ease, if it wasn’t for similar things happening throughout the book.
But little things like that can mislead new folks when they’re learning about heathenry. Even with my issues in some parts, I commend Coulter for putting his own perspectives into a practical and down to earth book, that does help spark some ideas in developing a practice.
My take on Odinism he calls it Irminism is different than Coulters in a myriad of ways but I was very impressed with this book none the less. Coulter seems to base his beliefs mainly on what is known about the heathen continental Germanic tribes as opposed to the usual ideas that come from the lore and history of Scandinavia and to a lesser extent the British Isles.
One good thing Coulter does is he emphasizes the home, family, kin and doesn’t really delve much into the warrior side of norther My take on Odinism he gremanic it Irminism is practjcal than Coulters in a myriad of ways but I was very impressed with this book none the less.
One good thing Coulter does is he emphasizes the home, family, kin and doesn’t really delve much into the warrior side of northern European heathenry. This is good because I think over emphasizing the warrior aspect tends to attract the nerdy role playing sca pretend warrior types who are into dressing up and playing Viking instead of spiritual people who are serious about discovering Odinism. I also found w take on the different germnaic of wights and elves very interesting.
There is loads more great heathfnry in this book, even Coulters own translation of the Havamal. This book would probably go over the beginner or person with only a casual interests head real fast but for the true Odinic seeker this book is essential reading.
