Individuals labeling themselves “Heathens” have largely separated themselves from the rest of the Pagan community and have established their own religious and social practices. This course provides an introduction to the ethics and philosophy of those following the Northern European paths commonly referred to as Heathenism. Students will learn about why this has occurred, study the unique values of the Heathen community, and emerge better prepared to handle diversity in a ministerial context. Additional electronic resources will be provided in the classroom.
