The material I posted to the Bakcheion is not complete without this piece; likewise it should help contextualize some of the more obscure allusions in my set of Daily Hymns for Freyja.

Oh, and for those who find it problematic that I rely so heavily on Wikipedia in this one – seiðr and its various offshoots within the Northern traditions is a sacred mystery and a closed, initiatory system. Therefore I wanted to use only publicly available information rather than academic or practitioner accounts which might touch upon matters of τα άρρητον or άπόρρητον, inadvertently causing religious offense to the divinities involved.
