Wóðinaz / Óðinn / Wóden / Odin, "the possessed one", a real man, a deified local Proto-Teutonic chieftan-warrior, from the West-Baltic Island, Fyn

(*Wóðinaz, later, Wóden, Wuotan, Wotan, Wódan & the furthest phonologically to proto-Germanic, Óðinn or Odin. I will call him Wóden. Too much fuss is made about this god. He was a latecomer to the Scando-Germanic pantheon. Never mentioned by East-Teutons, nor by NW-Teutons [before c.300AD] according to Tacitus, Roman historian, Tacitus;

IS FYN, ODIN'S/WODEN'S BIRTHPLACE
The Germania (Latin: De Origine et situ Germanorum, literally Concerning the Origin and Situation of the Germanic peoples), written by Gaius Cornelius Tacitus, c. AD 98, is an ethnographic work on the Germanic tribes outside the Roman Empire. (Wikipedia)
You can type in "Wóden", Óðinn or *Wóðenaz into my blog-search-engine to get my notes, justification & cites, why i believe Wóden was a Northwest Germanic warrior/chieftain, born c. 150 AD, on the modern-Danish Island of Fyn [Funen, Fjón].

Germanic religion and mythology : in depth




Published, edited, images added and annotations/commentary (in red) by Kenneth S. Doig

(FROM:ENCYCLOPÆDIA BRITANNICA)
Germanic religion and mythology, complex of stories, lore, and beliefs about the gods and the nature of the cosmos developed by the Germanic-speaking peoples before their conversion to Christianity.


Germanic culture extended, at various times, from the Black Sea to Greenland, or even the North American continent. Germanic religion played an important role in shaping the civilization of Europe. 


But since the Germanic peoples of the Continent and of England were converted to Christianity in comparatively early times, it is not surprising that less is known about the gods whom they used to worship and the forms of their religious cults than about those of Scandinavia, where Germanic religion survived until relatively late in the Middle-Ages.

 You can type in "Wóden", "Óðinn" or "Wóðenaz" into my blog-search-engine to get my notes, justification & cites, why i belive Wóden was a Northwest Germanic warrior/chieftain, born c. 150 AD, on the modern-Danish Island of Fyn [Funen, Fjón]. 


 And that through fame & deed, he was deified to a god. His cult grew, his real-life's story faded, thus was invented many creation-myths for him. There is still today a modern city, Odense, named after him, most likely  commemorating his birthplace.

WHY ÁSATRÚ? 
(from Odinsvolk)

Asatru is the ancient ethnic indigenous spirituality of the Germanic peoples. As a religion it preceeds Christianity by thousands of years, and is as old as this unique branch of humanity itself.
