RealPagan- Paganism for the Real World

… is a general term for beliefs and practice based on the old religion of the Germanic peoples of the continent and in England, Scandinavia, and Iceland. It may be called “Norse religion”, “Teutonic” or “Germanic Religion”, “Ásatrú”, “Odinism”, or other names by those who are returning to its practice today. The religion of the peoples of Northern Europe ultimately derives from the same Indo-European source as those of the Celts and of early Rome, and like them, was influenced by the religions of the peoples who preceded them. Like British Wicca, it is one of the Native European religions, part of the Old Religion of the Earth which is practiced wherever people remember the ancient ways.

There are many names for Germanic neo paganism but if you scratch the surface of some of them you will find that these terms are not interchangeable because there are fundamental differences in their practices, world-views and politics.
