|Full Title||The Northern Dawn: A History of the Reawakening of the Germanic Spirit, Vol. I|
|Short Description||Great ideas are marked by their persistence over time. Many such ideas are perennial aspects of Germanic culture that deep-culture which gave rise to the English, Scandinavian as well as German nations. Such ideas have continually remanifested themselves when called upon to renew and inspire the world to which they belong. The Northern Dawn is a history of the persistent reemergence of these ideas despite continuous anti-cultural efforts to destroy them by adherents of medieval and modernistic repression. These concepts include personal freedom and responsibility, tribal solidarity, heroic virtues, and the search for the mysterious both out in the world and within the human soul. At this point in time no culture is perhaps more misunderstood than the Germanic one. Yet this is the culture which lies at the very root of the dominant 'western' world today. Much of the dysfunction in the modern world can be traced to misunderstanding and misuse of the cultural root upon which it is based. A new look at this foundation and the historical trials and tribulations it has underdone will lead to a greater understanding of our world today. Additionally, we trust that this understanding will lead to a new dimension in cultural healing as the light of the northern dawn breaks once more to illuminate our sleepy minds. Covered in this volume are the basic authentic cultural values and definitions of essential theoretical terms, the history of Christianisation of the Germanic tribes, and the preservation of cultural features in the Middle Ages throughout the Germanic world. As a consistent feature of the volumes in this series, a full spectrum of cultural aspects are systematically treated: law and politics, literature, religion and myth, language, as well as material culture. This volume of The Northern Dawn is the first in a projected three volume series. These volumes will put into intellectual and historical perspective the age-old struggle to reawaken perennial Germanic and Indo-European values.|
