This Irminsul pendant is a replica of an ancient structure. The irminsul was an old structure that played a pivotal role in the pagan religion of the Anglo Saxons. The word Irminsul in Old Saxon translates into modern English as “erected pillar” or “the great pillar.” As Charlemagne lead the Frankish decimation of pagan lands in the 8th century, he conquered Saxony by destroying this ancient holy site. Through this act, the obliteration of Pagan tradition had begun for Northern Europeans. As a sign of remembrance, pagans today are wearing this Irminsul pendant.
The Irminsul comes in many forms and is sometimes depicted as a tree. Chronicled by Bede, the Irminsul was described as being a massive tree trunk that was erected and reached towards the sky.
Today the Irminsul reminds pagans of the destruction of our ancient tradition. Going forth, wearing the irminsul serves as a reminder of our strength and the re-emergence of our faith. To read our blog post on the Irminsul click HERE.
