Dear friends, brothers and sisters, fellow pagans.
I’ m Vlassis Rassias and I represent the Supreme Council of Ethnikoi Hellenes (YSEE), the main board of representation for the followers of the ethnic polytheistic Hellenic Religion. Our aim is to defend from verbal and physical abuse all the holy items, symbols and ideas of our Tradition and, of course, to fully restore the Hellenic Religion, against the fact that the Greek state has so far omitted in its legislation the granting of legal personality to religious communities apart the three byzantine religions -Orthodox Christianity, Turkish Sunni Islam and Judaism- which constitute Public Law Legal Entities. Continue reading Bologna 2010 speech of Vlassis Rassias (Supreme Council of Ethnikoi Hellenes – YSEE)

But still, there were people, who understood all the importance ofancient religion. Continue reading Report of Slavonic Native Religion community «The Great Fire, Bologne, Italy 2010
Wenn man die alte Religion der Vorfahren aus den nicht so reichlichen Quellen rekonstruiert, dann steht man irgendwann vor dem Problem, daß zu einer Religion, die dem einzelnen Menschen auch Anleitungen für ein richtiges, also den Göttern gefälliges Handeln geben soll, eine ausgearbeitete ethische Lehre dazugehört. Leider ist es aber bei den germanischen Überlieferungen so, daß ethische Regeln nur indirekt zu finden sind und es daher viel Mühe braucht, um daraus wieder eine vollständige ethische Lehre zu entwickeln. Continue reading Die Ethik des Alt-Heidentums
As with most other indigenous ethnic or folk religions, the ancestors of modern-day Scandinavians actually had no specific name for their religion. In those ancient times, when the whole community lived by one same religion, there was no need for a “name,” because there were simply no other religions known to them at the time.
