Welcome to Mīne Wyrtruman!
This website is dedicated to Fyrnsidu, a modern religion based upon the religion of the pre-Christian Germanic tribes that settled in Britain in the fifth century of the common era. These people, commonly known as the Anglo-Saxons, brought with them a religion that is both similar to, yet distinct from, the religion of the pre-Christian Nordic peoples. Fyrnsidu is a religion based upon the worship of the Anglo-Saxon gods, one’s ancestors, and the wights (spirits) of the land around us and in our homes. If you’re curious about Fyrnsidu, check out my slideshow Introduction to Fyrnsidu. The best resource to learn more about Fyrnsidu is Fyrnsidu.faith.
