Nordic Animism has become one of the more significant new theologies within the modern Pagan and Heathen community. Based on a counter-reading of earlier, often colonial, interpretations of religions that was perceived to belong to a more primitive form of religion, modern forms of Animism see in these religions a more holistic approach to existence that it is argued is needed to counter the coming ecological crisis the world is facing. This article presents how Nordic Animism is based on a reception of Animism and Pagan religions that dates back to the 19th century and how this reception has been reimagined to create a meaningful spiritual narrative for the Heathens of the 21th century.
