Followers of this tradition are known as Thorists, Thorsmen, Thorswomen or Thorsfolk.
This path is well recorded from ancient Heathenry with descriptions and depictions of Thor enthroned in the centre of the other deities with a halo of stars. Most of these seem to derive from the layout of ancient Heatheny's most famous temple at Uppsala.
Thor's Area of InfluenceEdit
As chief god Thor is seen as a wise protector and a master of the magical arts. He watches over the worlds from his throne and can travel instantly to any place where he is needed.
His many roles include justice, hallowing and keeping the climate in balance.
Thor and the GoddessEdit
Interpretion of the MythsEdit
Personal interpretations of this faith vary between individuals but typical adaptions of the mytholgy are as follows:
Fishing for the SerpentEdit
A number of Thorsfolk beleive that in the original tale Thor was victorious over the serpent and this story was the best illustration of the god's strength and power. Snorri himself acknowledges in the Edda that his version is his opinion and not that in general circulation at the time.
Many Thorsmen believe that after they die, they will dwell in Thor's hall until they are needed for Ragnarok.
Thor and LokiEdit
The Way of Thor is closely tied in the agricultural seasons and the natural year. Arts crafts and skills are highly prized by Thorsfolk as they work to improve their local communities. Environmental concerns are also of great importance for Thorsfolk.
