On The True Origins Of Jormungandr – Illuminated Via The Dread Vedic Sorcery Of Tvastr

The Nordic sphere of Indo-European religion is a paradox. At once it has a fragmentary textual canon that's substantively post-Christianization and by various turns interpolated, euhemerized, cryptic, and occasionally just plain missing.  Yet it also manages to preserve quite an array of authentic and archaic elements within its troves.
