From the Publisher

Paganism is a growing force, and I believe a disinterested
observer should record and publish some of the material
available on the Odin Brotherhood, a mysterious fraternity that
is one of the most interesting manifestations of Odinist polytheism.
Because my aim is preservation rather than criticism, I have
simply detailed the Brotherhood’s beliefs and have made no
attempt to scrutinize their “mysteries.” At times the ideas
relayed to me were unusual in the extreme—doctrines that deify
men and humanize gods, legends of magic gates that lead to
divine enclaves, prophecies of wars with apocalyptic monsters,
clues concerning a treasure trove of golden monoliths, and much
more.

Sanders took issue with a piece Vought wrote in January 2016 about a fight at the nominee’s alma mater, Wheaton College. The Christian school had fired a political-science professor, Laryc

How Islam is Different From Other Religions

WE WANT TO BELIEVE WE’RE ALL BASICALLY the same and want the same things, but what if we’re not? Islam, in both theory and practice, is exceptional in how it relates to politics. Because of its outsize role in law and governance, Islam has been—and will continue to be—resistant to secularization. I am a bit uncomfortable making this claim, especially now, with anti-Muslim bigotry on the rise. But Islamic exceptionalism is neither good nor bad. It just is, and we need to understand and respect that. Two factors are worth emphasizing: First, the founding moment of Islam looms large. Unlike Je

Which Comes First, Big Cities or Big Gods?

Warriors among the Kwara’ae, a collection of tribal communities indigenous to the Solomon Islands, sacrificed pigs before battle. The tradition granted the combatants, so the belief went, aid from heroic ancestral spirits—like the mighty A’orama, a fierce fighter in Kwara’ae folklore. For every man who prepared to shed blood, a hog met its end.1 Any non-superstitious observer might regard this ritual as a costly habit. Why give offerings when one can eat them instead? This puzzle is not unique to the Kwara’ae. Why pray? Or erect and attend churches, mosques, temples? Or observe holidays and fa
