. Odinism is a polytheistic religion; even though the focus is often on Odin, other of the Aesir
are somerimes worshiped as well. It is not a Neo-Pagan or New Age religion. Odinism is an ancient indigenous religion of Northern Europe that predates more well known religions as Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism; and Islam and Christianity who are but mere babies in contrast.
There are Asatruar
and Odinists who feel that they are the same religion, while many others who feel that Asatru
and Odinism have distinct differences.
