I was a huge deal in most Heathen circles last year when the news of Ásatrúarfélagið’s attempt to construct the first Heathen Temple in Iceland in over 1000 years was picked up by the media. Since then, news of the progress has been sparse, leaving many wondering what ever happened with that project.
The Hof is scheduled to be completed sometime in the summer of this year! While a few misprints and mis-attributed images of other buildings have cropped up, the Hof is actually still being finished. For more information on Ásatrúarfélagið and the Hof’s design and intent, check out this interview with Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson (Head of Ásatrúarfélagið).
