    Question About Heathen Ritual Clothing

    I have seen pictures on the Internet and the clothes of the Heathen priesters were so similar to the contemporary Catholic priests' clothing. F.e. under a mess a priest uses to wear a long (till the floor) white tunic and a long stole with various colour to the various celebration (the allday colour is green). This costume is very similar to those Heathen priestes' clothing what I have seen.

    Catholic clergy costume:



    Heathen priest costume:





    That is sure that the earlier is the Catholic one as it based on the allday clothing of the Roman civilian in the Late Antiquity.

    Now this is the question that did the Heathen priests copy directly own costume from the Church? Or why did not they copy from the Protestant pastors' black cloak? The most of the Germanic lands are Protestant, expect Baden-Würtemberg and Bayern in the Federal Republic of Germany.

    Another questions would be that have us any source what were the costumes of the Ancient Germanic priestes?

    My knowledge base is not large enough to fully answer your first question. But if my memory serves me right the colour white can be associated with the first function as defined by Georges Dumézil. Which of course is also a partial answer to your second question.

    Nor for the rest. Any heathen who had done his homework could tell you that the protestants where obsessed with removing the pagan elements remaining in our cultures and in the Catholic Church.

    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    It is very interesting that in the Catholic Church have survived more heathen tradition side by side the Protestant sais "Sola Scriptura", only the Bible, hence they exterminate everything what connected to the Heathendom. Especially in the villages where the Church tolerated the old habits of the folk of the land. However it was in the Old-Europe, the part of the Continete upper the Alpes and Carpathes. Souther the Church destroyed the whole antique culture, temples, libraries, priestes, priestesses. It seems the Germanic anger was stronger than the Church Furthermore what the Church did not make, the Protestant predicators and their henchmen did. It was the age of the religious wars, witch pursuits, they killed everything whos conected to the nature, knew the herbal plants, or simply the neighbourhood reported them that they are with. In this aspect of view the 16-17th centuries were more obscure and bloodthirsty than the erlier High Middle Age.

    White is the color of spirituality and of the priestly caste in almost all cultures. All cultures also ascribe large robes to their spiritual practitioners.

    The Hindus, the ancient Greeks, the ancient Druids, the Zoroastrians... all have this type of clothing.

    The Catholic Church has many rituals in common with other ancestral traditions, precisely because it is a real spiritual tradition founded by the Christ and early saints. All true spiritual traditions more or less share common characteristics, not because they "stole" from each other, but because they are based on the same eternal spiritual truths.

    Protestantism on the other hand is just a man-made system that has been designed for pragmatism. It isn't rooted in esoteric knowledge, so they felt they could just do away with rituals and/or design rituals of their own. That is how they end up playing guitar in their congregations, instead of organ and refined chants such as Taize or Gregorian.


    This being said, most of those modern heathens are just aping some primitive form of spirituality which they don't understand anymore. Without realizing it, they are totally conditioned by their Christian heritage and just practice a "drinking horn" version of Christianity.

    For example, all ancient pagans across the ancient world would usually exterminate their enemies, rape their women and sell the women and children as slaves (or exterminate them to make sure that race doesn't grow again). And think nothing of it - that was the norm.

    Now, try to say this to modern wannabe heathens, and they will say that no, they won't do that because they have "ethics" and "morals"... Christian ethics, that is, because 3,000 years ago, the only ethics was power and domination of your tribe over others. The only people you had to respect were those connected to you by blood and who shared the same interests. Moslems and other Browns still live in that mindset.

    Christianity put an end to all this, because it is a path based on the Heart and compassion. Compassion and "decency" as we know them today were very much unknown to the ancients. This is why the Church waged merciless war against them, to root out the barbarism and impose the meeker values of the Christ.

    The meek Westerners of today are the result of 2,000 years of Christianization, of centuries of humbleness imposed by the Church, for their own spiritual good.


    So today, we see the typical conservative citizen posting things such as this online:

    WE SHOULD DEAL WITH THOSE INVADERS THE WAY OUR ANCESTORS DID!!!


    Wanking over "knights"... because knights are weak and moralistic, so they can identify with them.

    While if you post a picture of someone who, in much more recent times, really did exterminate his enemies, their women and children like the ancient pagans did, then you get in trouble.

    The meek, Christianized Westerners simply cannot take it anymore.
