More About Ergi semantics

Viewed as a whole, it is true to say that the corpus of Icelandic Sagas, skaldic verse and Eddic Poetry is saturated with references to sorcery in general and seiðr in particular. Its practitioners are of both sexes and are given the variety of titles, but the constant prevalence of magic never subsides...........in view of the sheer cumulative volume of references to everyday 'witchcraft' it’s surprising that so little work has been done on its integration into our models of the Viking World."

I have found enough examples of historical seiðr praxis by men within the primary sources to dispel the modern myth that only gay men (Ergi bullshit) or females only practised the art of seiðr but it would take a whole book to do this argument justice.Also the Ergi argument (poorly mistranslated semantics) which persist today by the lesser read or informed in Asatru about how unmanly it was seen to practice what was essentially mistakenly considered as female magic only is grossly inaccurate both in historical praxis, mindset and post modernist thinking. Magic as we understand it was also known to warriors despite the prevalent bullshit out there to the contrary on "unmanly". Delve deeper!
