    The BBC Films Pagan Ceremonies in Iceland

    The BBC Films Pagan Ceremonies in Iceland

    A documentary film crew from the BBC attended two weddings, two naming ceremonies and one coming-of-age ceremony undertaken by Ásatrúarfélagid, the pagan society in Iceland, which honors the Norse gods, at Thingvellir national park on Thursday.

    Egill Baldursson, Ásatrúarfélagid’s lawspeaker, told Fréttabladid, that the association holds a ceremony at Iceland’s ancient Althingi parliament in Thingvellir every year close to the summer solstice, on Thor’s Day (Thursday) in the tenth week of summer.

    “It was successful as always,” Baldursson said. “Here, people get together and enjoy each other’s company.” This time, for extra fun, members of the Viking association Einherji marched around Thingvellir in full battle uniform.

    It does not seem like the documentary has been released yet and there is no information about its title or scope. Here is another clip about Ásatrúarfélagid, though:
