About Us Northvegr.net
It is only by gaining familiarity with sound, modern scholarship on these subjects that we believe is essential to meaningful learning. We advocate promoting scholarship based upon critical thought. We recognise and re-affirm that the pre-Christian Northern Tradition has no correlation to modern day racism, which remains an outgrowth of 19 th Century racial Nationalism based in part through the search for Identity. We are unequivocally opposed to those who bring our spiritual heritage into disgrace by combining it with racial hatred or separatist doctrines We likewise repudiate those who promote a race-based parody of the Northern mythos through the misguided works of 19th-century Romantic nationalists, and fraudulent texts like the Oera Linda Book. Genuine understanding of our spiritual heritage should not be confined to ivory towers, and that outside academia should have access to more than New Age paperbacks and self-published purveyors of fantasy.
The search goes on even today with more people looking towards alternative spirituality and especially the religious belief's and cultures of their Northern European ancestors. Sadly totally alien separatist hatred based doctrines also began to infiltrate the Northern Way bringing with them the racist ideology of “pure bloods”, shrouded inside the 19th Century National Romanticism search for white identity culture excuse based in the main on some imagined fabricated Epic Teutonic Mythology. These blatantly modern foreign ideals abound, poorly disguised as traditional but white race only 'Asatru'. The World Wide Web and many private non-academic publishing houses have regurgitated the old race hatred paradigm on what is claimed to be the Northern spiritual faiths but seldom have anything in them that our ancestors would have recognized as their own. Instead promoting secular, fantasia occult and social-political ideals that promote individual egos power base of their unverifiable personal gnosis points of view rather than anything that is factually based in the real history of our folkway.
To the contrary there remains a great deal of historical academic works much of which still remains untranslated from which any true seeker can search the academic tomes of historical based evidence through University publications and literature for the return to their ancestral ways actual as opposed to aligning with weekend campfire cults. But accurate ancestral knowledge alone is never enough. Folks need to come away from post modernist mindsets based on Judeo Christian political correctness, the racial search for identity bigotry stemming from 19th Century European Nationalism rather than any real Northern worldview to re-align their thoughts and begin to act holistically as well as think in a different way. To this end, we at Northvegr are totally dedicated to keep with the truth and promote the real Northern Way for all those who would listen. Northvegr.net strives to promote a balanced approach to scholarship, accessible to all with a serious interest in learning about the elder ways. Genuine understanding of our spiritual heritage should not be confined to ivory towers or weekend search for white identity campfire cults, and those outside academia should have access to more than New Age paperbacks and self-published purveyors of fantasy. The New Northvegr Centre seeks to bridge that gap.
