    Post Protestantism and the Nordic Soul

    It didn't take me long to figure out that there was a huge similarity between the distribution of Protestantism and the prevalence of the Nordic race in Europe. Of course there are some exceptions, but the rule is that Nordic/Germanic = Protestant.

    Anyone else ever noticed this? Could it have something to do with Gustavus Adolphus' strong influence in the north during the Thirty Years War, or the strong Spanish influence to the south?

    Post Yep.

    For some reason, historians recoil from this. It seems obvious to me.

    If you look at the Germanic language frontier and compare it to the schism, there is a close correspondence. Those 'contact' areas are where exception is noted. Protestantism made a strong, but failed bid in France and Catholicism triumphed in southern Germany.

    The Kelts split with Scotland leaving and Ireland keeping the Pope.

    The Slavs are mostly irrelevant in this episode, except the Poles who remained Catholic.

    I think it mostly stems from politics more than anything.
    After the Reformation, many princes and soverigns chose their allegance (loyal to Rome or breaking with Rome) depending on their positions at the time. For those who considered it advantageous to remain intimate with Rome, they tended to do so. The opposite was also true of those who perhaps seen their rivals favoured at the Pope's court.

    I think for many places, real religious conviction had suprisingly little to do with the decision and was more bound up in the politics and power-struggles of that particular era.
    However, I agree there does seem to be a correlation between some of the Germanic people's and Protestantism (in a genral way of course as Protestants can be found in Catholic countries and vice versa)

    There's much more correlation in the way faith is embraced and experience according to the "Seele" of a given race.
    Some of the most zealously and ardent protestant regions in the Netherlands, Saxo-Frisian territory like Groningen or Overijssel, were the least prone to give up Catholicism during the Reformation, once however Protestantism took firm hold, these people demonstrated the same "Verharrung" in their new beliefs and customs as before; a certain incapacity to live more freely and in the spirit and by meditation and rational reflection of one's religion in stead of strictly by the rule, contained, fundamentalistic, which is the typical expression of the Faelid mind.

    The certain covering of Protestantism and Nordic race is often mentioned and discussed in race-psychological literature of the twenties and thirties. It's somehow as religious feeling "cool" and spröde (coy?) in its character, and as an expression of religious feeling it shows more how the Nordic soul imagines the relationship between the individuum and God: more the free mind that feels the divine power everywhere and in itself and without to much between it than the "Magical" feeling and ceremonies of original oriental Christianity.
    Catholicism in Southern European countries e. g. is "warmer" than Northern European, stresses more the emotions and more an expression of the Mediterranean soul.

    Not to speak of the Christianity of Negroes where the Negro soul truly expresses itself...

    Yet they, Catholicism and Protestantism and other Christianities, use the same book based around Semitic belief systems.

    Post Re: Protestantism and the Nordic soul

    I think it's a coincidence. Nordic countries are further from Rome, therefore were better positioned to resist the armies of the Popes. Also, a matter of pride was involved since the Popes tended to be Italians, not Germans, English, or Swedes.

    Even after the Schism, the Lutheran and Anglican Churches still retained the form of the Roman Church.

    Today, many racialists looking for pre-Christian religious roots adopt magical rituals and many gods. The Catholic Church had already accomodated the European soul as the Church was first Hellenized and then Germanized. Only in recent decades has the Catholic Church lost its appeal to the European soul by removing the artwork in churches, de-Canonizing some Saints, "forgetting" rituals that had a pagan root, like Blessing of the Animals, 'Charming' of the Plow, etc.

    You don't often hear of Catholics having a personal patron Saint anymore, which I find regrettable, because of the private devotion it affords. Everyone is supposed to have no other God but Jesus, which makes everyone's spirituality the same. In traditional Catholicism are found Saints (gods) for gardeners, carpenters, scientists, etc.

    It's the Protestants (and post-Vatican II Catholics) with their rejection of the paganism--the European root--that are spiritually Semitic.

    I hear Protestants say Catholics aren't Christian and I think, "Praise the Saints! I don't have a wish to be a second class Jew."
