Blogging Our Troth, part 8: The Forgotten Gods and Goddesses

This week's selection from the forthcoming third edition of Our Troth seems timely. June 5 is the feast day in the Roman Catholic Church of St. Boniface, who was noted for his missionary efforts in present-day Germany, until he was martyred in 754. Among other deeds, he is said to have felled the "Oak of Jupiter" (presumably sacred to Thor, or Donar) that once stood at Gaesmere (probably near Fritzlar in modern Hesse) and built a chapel from its wood. He is said to have destroyed other idols and holy sites.
