Lecture Description: Ms. Krasskova will be speaking on the role and controversies of devotional practice in modern heathenry or Asatru. Since little information survives on the actual, personal devotional practices of pre-Christian pagans, there is a breadth of belief and practice within modern-day adherents of Heathenry.

She holds a BA in Religious Studies and will be pursuing her Masters in Religion in the fall.
