Æppeldor is a frithstow (sanctuary) of the Ealdríce found in the land now known as Tasmania and steaded in the Huon Valley. As such, it serves the Australian outpost of Théodish Belief and is stewarded by Friðoríc, fósterling to Þórbeorht Línleah, Ealdorblótere (chief priest) of the Ealdríce who, himself, is sworn to our sacral king, Gárman Lord Cyning.
Anglo-Saxon Théodish Belief, also known as Theodism, is the rekindling of the manygodded troth that was held by our Anglo-Saxon heathen forebears before the coming of Christianity. Thus we are given to the mystery of sacral kingship and to worship of such gods and goddesses as Tíw, Wóden, Fríg, Þunor, and Éastre who are remembered still today in the names for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Easter.
Heathenfolk in Australia and New Zealand who are keen to know more about Anglo-Saxon Théodish Belief may reach Friðoríc and Æppeldor Friþstów here. We look forward to hearing from you!
