Pagans And Metal

Monday, June 22, 2009

Metals were seen as valuable by pagans even though they did not really know how rare they were and precious, they put great symbolism on their strength, the ability to create weapons and their longevity. Leaders were buried with chattels and weapons of the strongest metals and the rarest stones, which also held great symbolic strength.

Pagans, although strongly regulated by the cycles of the earth it self, showed us perhaps ways to respect nature and work with her instead of against her. Because their lives were so closely tied with the cycle of life and the seasons, it is no wonder they placed huge importance on gaining favors to obtain fertility and good harvest so they could get through each year and survive into the spring and summer.

Whatever faith we have ourselves, sometimes, you begin to think a little touch of the pagan is not such a bad thing!
