Ship of the Sun or Ship of the Dead? Stone Ships


Stone ship settings or Skeppssättning are amongst the most remarkable Viking age monuments in Scandinavia, but what were they for? They were built over a period of 2000 years from the Nordic bronze age until the end of the Viking age, mainly in grave fields but they weren’t just associated with burials and cremations as they were also used for a kind of meeting called a ‘Thing’. This video explains how the stone ships may relate first to a Bronze age cult of the sun in Gotland, and later to a Viking belief that the dead would need a vehicle for a journey to and from the underworld. The stone ship settings included in this film are Tjelvars grave in Gotland, Anundshög in Västmanland, Åsa domaresäte in Södermanland, Ängakåsen and Ale’s stones in Scania and the Jelling stone ship in Denmark.

TONIGHT: The Transhumanist question


Borja and I will discuss the important theological and philosophical questions which arise for pagans confronted by a transhumanist power structure. Is transhumanism the re-emergence of gnosticism? For we who consider the world, nature and the blood to be divine is it acceptable to meddle with DNA or seek salvation through technology? These issues will be discussed in more detail at the Pagan Futures conference in London next month, but tonight we will introduce the topics.

the livestream starts in one hour!

PAGAN FUTURES CONFERENCE - LONDON


Pagans represent a small but growing force within the diverse religious groups of the UK and Europe at large. Despite this, the philosophical and political foundations of British, and Western leaders in general, presume common values predicated on thought systems which exclude pagans. How can the integrity of our tradition be upheld going forward?

Key Points


  • This conference is being organised in association with the Survive the Jive™ Historical Research Project.
  • The theme of this conference is- 'Preserving European spiritual traditions in a globalised future'.
  • The purpose of this conference is to bring together polytheist thought leaders of the Indo-European traditions to consider building a philosophical framework for preserving the integrity of our traditions within an emerging new world order
  • Historian, YouTuber and renowned polytheist Thomas Rowsell known for the Survive the Jive YouTube channel shall be the keynote speaker. 
  • Dr.Borja Vilallonga, Ph.D. is a scholar of history and religion previously at Columbia University, New York University, and the University of Newcastle. He has devoted his research to the relationship between traditional religion and modernity and runs a YouTube channel called 'The Modern Platonist'
  • There will a live musical performance from the pagan folk artist Wolcensmen
  • Audience participation is encouraged during a Q and A session with the speakers
  • It is estimated there are over 250,000 pagan polytheists in the UK in addition to a similar number of Hindus
  • Current political rhetoric regarding alleged ‘common values’ of ‘global humanity’ deliberately marginalises, excludes or misrepresents the deeply held beliefs of polytheists
  • Advancements in technology pose challenges to those who uphold pagan systems of ethics
  • Let us address these issues and more, together
