  • look up German mythology on Google it should bring up something. try looking up Odin or Thor those are Norse gods but they might bring up something about German gods in there

  • I live in Germany and I have never heard of any gods or goddesses that are worshipped here. I certainly don't doubt that people worship other things that God here. But the state religions, and the religions of most of Germany are Evangelical and Catholic. I have noticed that some of the festivals celebrated here come from pagan origins. I haven't really looked into this though. Everyone around my area is either agnostic, Evangelical, or Catholic.

  • I am talking about pre-Christian Germany, missionarywife, not current beliefs. I live in Germany too, and everyone I know around here is either Lutheran or Catholic, but since I am here, i thought I'd learn about pre-Christian beliefs in this area.


    Thanks SarahLee, I'll have a look at that link :)
