We live in a world wherein ethics and moral conduct is given little attention.
This lecture is about Norse and Germanic pagan ethics, and how they can be engaged with in the modern world. Throughout this talk we will through historical sources discuss what our pagan ancestors viewed as moral behavior, and how the ethics of our forebears differ from that of modernity.
We will explore the virtues of the norse world: generosity, reciprocity, honor, courage, loyalty and eloquence; in addition to its vices: dishonesty, sloth, cowardice and instability. Some of the topics we will cover in the lecture are friendship, love, sexuality, conflict, cooperation and warfare, in addition to much more.
Our lecturers, Ragnar and Henrik, will take us on a journey through the ethics of the pagan north, viewed through our sources. We will moreover examine whether the ethics of the past have survived up until the modern age, and how we can revive them as a spiritual practice in our own daily lives.
The talk will last for about 90 minutes, after which participants are welcome to ask questions and discuss the topics covered further.
