Chapter: A Brief History of American Astaru

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.25649


Heathenry has over forty years of history as an American religious movement. Putting together this history is complicated process to which many scholars have contributed. This chapter provides a distinctive approach and fills in some of the gaps in the narrative, advancing the historical account into the near present. It reflects the author’s own judgment about the personalities and events that have indelibly shaped the trajectory of the movement.
