The Nine Noble Virtues, extrapolated from the Norse texts, are a set of pagan
values first codified by John Yeowell and John Gibbs-Bailey in 1974; both men were acquaintances of the late, great Sir Oswald Mosley, founder of the British Union of Fascists.
The Sixfold Goal was codified by American professor of Germanic studies Dr Stephen Flowers in 1989.
“Nine Noble Virtues”
- Self Reliance
The Nine Charges:
- To maintain candour and fidelity in love and devotion to the tried friend: though he strike me I will do him no scathe.
- Never to make wrongsome oath: for great and grim is the reward for the breaking of plighted troth.
- To deal not hardly with the humble and the lowly.
- To remember the respect that is due to great age.
- To suffer no evil to go unremedied and to fight against the enemies of Faith, Folk and Family: my foes I will fight in the field, nor will I stay to be burnt in my house.
- To succour the friendless but to put no faith in the pledged word of a stranger people.
- If I hear the fool’s word of a drunken man I will strive not: for many a grief and the very death groweth from out such things.
- To give kind heed to dead people: straw dead, sea dead or sword dead.
- To abide by the enactments of lawful authority and to bear with courage the decrees of the Norns.
