Beyond the North Wind
Beyond the North Wind3,96 24 5 Scritto da: Christopher McIntosh Letto da: Simon Vance
This mythic conception of a unique, powerful, and mysterious Northern civilization was known to the Greeks as “Hyberborea”—the “Land Beyond the North Wind”—which they considered to be the true origin place of their god, Apollo, bringer of civilization. Through the Greeks, this concept of the mythic North would spread throughout Western civilization.
In addition, McIntosh discusses Russian Hyperboreanism, which he describes as among “the most influential of the new religions and quasi-religious movements that have sprung up in Russia since the fall of Communism” and which is currently almost unknown in the West.
