The Brotherhood practices the old warrior religion that is today called Odinism or Asatru. Consecrated to the pagan gods and goddesses of the norse pantheon, these deities are viewed as "older, better, and truer." Members of the Brotherhood use the Eddaic Verses–also called the Poetic Edda–as a kind of scripture.
Members claim their pagan order was established in 1421 to protect the ancient religion during the "Burning Times," and they insist it has existed in unbroken lineage to the present. If the claim is accurate, the Odin Brotherhood resembles the Tariquat, the secret brotherhoods in Islam that sustain the traditions underground in times of intense persecution.
