Northern Ireland Approves First Pagan Priest in Modern Times

GLENGORMLEY, NORTHERN IRELAND — It took a combination of patience, paperwork, and publicity, but Patrick Carberry has been approved by the Northern Ireland government as a Pagan priest. His is the first person to be so designated in this country and, by some reports, the first “since the time of Saint Patrick.” Carberry is the sovereign of the Order of the Golden River, which he founded in 2009. Now he will be able to perform weddings and otherwise function as a member of the clergy for that group.

Bryn Celli Ddu: Ancient Stone Circle and Passage Tomb Was for the Living and the Dead

Inside Iceland’s pagan revival – As Iceland begins construction of its first pagan temple in over 1,000 years, we speak to the high priest of the country’s fastest growing spiritual movement

That Icelanders wear their spirituality proudly on their sleeves is nothing new. The country’s vigorous creative scene has for decades produced music that seems permeated with an almost palpable connection to its mystical volcanic landscapes. So perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the fastest-growing spiritual community in Iceland is the neo-pagan association of Ásatrú, a polytheistic religion committed to honouring not only ancient Icelandic faith and culture, but also the country’s natural heritage. This month the movement’s rapid expansion is being manifested in a truly epic way, as the Ásatrú Association begins building a new temple for worshipping the Old Norse gods – the first of its kind to be raised on Icelandic soil since Christianity replaced paganism over 1,000 years ago.
