Swain Wódening, one of the founding members of Englatheod and the Ealdriht, started his Heathen life back in 1984 along with his brother. He learned of the AFA the year it disbanded, but in 1989 he learned of and joined the Troth. Shortly thereafter, he learned of Theodism, then solely an Anglo-Saxon phenomena, and joined the Winland Ríce in 1993. He rapidly advanced to the arung of lord by writing articles and attracting new members. In 1996, after several disputes with the leadership, he left to form the Angelseaxisce Ealdriht with Winfred Hodge Rose. The Ealdriht eventually became the Miercinga Theod in an effort to encourage regionalism, and to return to a purer form of Theodish Belief. He led that organization until June, 2006 when he resigned to seek a deeper spirituality. Swain is currently a member of Wednesbury Shire of White Marsh theod.

A most interesting book indeed! Though I am not a Theodsman I have long had an interest in Germanic tribalism. This book fills in a lot of knowledge gaps I have had over the years concerning this. As well it helped me understand what Theodism is and is not - something which has not been overly easy before now, as there is so much information (some of it conflicting) on the internet. A very good and informative read. Much recommended.
