Thursatru
Copyright © Vexior, 2010, www.vexior.seHere I want to bring up
Þursatrú
and
 Jøtnatrú
; anglicized to Thursatru and Jotnatru. I will focus more on the concept of Thursatru because it is moreof a correct name for this line of religion, tradition and praxis, according tothe Old Norse
fórnsiðr 
(Old tradition: I rather call it siðr than fórnsiðr (withof course the full understanding of the essence of rnsiðr), as thistradition should move on and expand, not stagnate in a previous era; thatwould be to fail the worship and witchcraft which the siðr is built upon of our Old ancestors. They considered it to be vital for the next one tocontinue their siðr.) First I want to make clear that there was no
Þursatrú
or
 Jøtnatrú
known in Old Scandinavia, these are names made in moderndays to point out the line of Old Norse religion, tradition and praxis. Butthey have traditions too, and my book U R A M is partly an introduction tothe foundation and essence of 
Þursatrú
. Thursatru means basically
the belief in thurses
, it is the name of theworkings with
 þursar 
(anglicized to thurses pl.), the whole of their religion,tradition and praxis. With the usages of the Old Norse plural form
 þursar 
itaims at the thursian powers, the true essences of the darker andadversary aspect of the giant-clans in the underworld as a whole. Theessence of the thursian powers dwells as a whole in the Thurs-rune, andthis rune is the symbol of the entire Thursatru. Runic combinations knownas bind-runes will only strengthen the Thurs-rune’s meaning and powerand are used in many sundry ways; this is by the Old tradition –
fórnsiðr 
. The Thurs-rune itself holds both the Thurs-rune and the Tiwaz-rune inÞursaTrú, if you just take the top v-shaped figure of the Tiwaz-rune andput it vertical on its stem, which makes the Thurs-rune a perfect bind-runeor sigil for the body of 
Þursatrú
. And to use the Thurs-rune as a bind-runeit is all of a sudden a rune of 
taufr 
, which means sorcery or even atalisman, and this is what the Tiwaz-rune represents here:
taufr 
as in non-static dynamic power of the cultus.
 
So what powers are we talking about, who is
 þurs
and who is
 jøtunn
? HereI'll bring up a few
 þursar 
who all are of great importance: The primordialur-thurs is Ýmir who is called by his own rime-thurs race Aurgelmir: thefirst of them all.
En þaðan af komu ættir, það eru hrímþursar. Hinn gamlihrímþurs, hann köllum vér Ými
. And he created Þrúðgelmir the six-headedthurs, Bergelmir was his son (
 þa var Bergelmir borinn; Þrudgelmir var þessfaðir, enn Aurgelmir afi
.) And many more thurses were created from thisrace; many are mentioned throughout the mythology, mostly rime-thursesand adversaries to the ǽsir. Loki and Gullveig are two key characters inmythology and worship; both are thurses and eminent enemies with theǽsir, probably two of the oldest thurses. Their children are of coursethurses: Jørmungandr, Fenrir and Hel; by my understanding and studiesFenrir belongs to the Múspell-race (like his father Loki) and Hel is chief-ruler of Niflheimr (of the Nifl-race like her mother Gullveig.) Surtr and allhis sons of Múspellzheimr are thurses and they all have a very importantrole in the Ragna Røk mythos. Þjazi and his brothers Iði and Gangr turnedinto thurses after being betrayed by the ǽsir. Niðhøggr dwells in Niflheimr,the home of all rime-thurses. Niðhøggr and his breed are gnawing on theroots of the world-tree to poison it and kill it from within – this allegorizesthe sole purpose of the thursian powers. Beli and his dog-headed clanbelong to the rime-thurses, etc. The Thursatru worship has its foundation in the underworld; Jøtunheimrand Helheimr, and in Chaos; Niflheimr and Múspellzheimr. The anti-cosmicand sinister powers of Jøtunheimr and Helheimr are worshipped as adverseentities. And the rime-world in Chaos, Niflheimr, with its deformed and icythurses, the world where Gullveig once walked out from and where heressence still dwells, and where Hel is the chief-ruler (Nifl-Hel) isworshipped as an acosmic and anti-cosmic
eitr 
-current invading thecosmos. Múspellzheimr, also in Chaos, with its ruler Surtr is worshipped asthe flaming world, where once Loki sprang out from. The worship isdevoted to the thurses, to uphold them and sacrifice to them so that theywill grow in power. The tradition that comes with this worship holds OldNorse rituals in many forms, a tradition that comes with devotion and
 
black magical praxis. The practical sorcery of this tradition is veryimportant and has been since ages before the Common Era. All of this isvery important to respect. And the rune-row is a central tool in the Thursatru Tradition, the calling for the powers includes it, and the blackmagical praxis is based on it and its mysteries. So therefore it is veryimportant to
understand
all of the runes, its old language, and its usage –this is an essential part of the Thursatru Tradition. Jotnatru is the name based on the word
 jøtunn
, which is in analogy withthe more benign giants who most often are friends with the ǽsir. It’s veryconfusing in the Old sagas because many authors mix the words
 þurs
and
 jøtunn
in sentences as if the words meant the same, but they do not. Thatis the main difference between
Þursatrú
and
 Jøtnatrú
, and this is why Jotnatru is an inappropriate name for a cultus opposing the ǽsir.
