The Covenant of Anglo-Saxon Heathenry :: Geleafawaer Fyrn Sida
"The words and promises you bring are fair enough, but because they are new to us and doubtful, I cannot consent to accept them and forsake those beliefs which I and the whole English race have held so long."
Fyrnsidu is an Old English term meaning "The Old Ways". We use this term today to refer to the spiritual and religious practices of the so-called "Heathen" Germanic peoples, specifically, the Anglo-Saxons. These ancient peoples had a way of life that recognized the interconnectedness of all things; the physical, spiritual and mental realms, and the natural cycles which govern all living creatures. This way of life was, and still is highly ethical and holistic. Fyrnsidu is not an historical recreation, it is a living religion based on the tenets and world-view of the "Heathen" Germanic peoples.
