Vanir: the Oldest Holy Family.
Norse Heathen Pages
Author's Notes on the Vanir: "Wanes" is an Anglicized
form of their name. They are one of three families of
(Aesir, Vanir and Jotnar). Creation myths describe the origin of the Aesir and
Jotnar, the other
families of Norse Gods and Goddesses. The Vanir, however, were
evidently just always there. Whereas the
Aesir are to an extent transcendent of
Nature, the Vanir are seen as immanent within it. Early in Time, the two
of Gods warred, but made peace, exchanged hostages, and joined forces.
