Mimir: Journal of North European Traditions

Gwendolyn Taunton

2web_front_coverPreviously titled Northern Traditions, Mimir – Journal of North European Traditions is the highly anticipated sequel to the first book Northern Traditions. Mimir offers a unique combination of academic research and cultural content. Though the level of research remains high, it is not the goal of Mimir to become a purely scholastic publication – rather our work is directed at the educated practitioners of the North European Traditions. In light of this, Mimir contains new research, translations of texts, original artwork and poetry to ensure it does not become a dry publication destined only for dusty university shelves. Instead, Mimir is designed to help cross the divide between academic research and practical experience in spirituality. Mimir, is first and foremost, a publication designed for those who are themselves believers in the Northern faiths – whether it be Asatru, Teutonic, Celtic, Anglo-Saxon or any other faith which is indigenous to Northern Europe. For this second volume, we have assembled a highly talented team of experts who we hope you will enjoy.
