This website is the online portal of Sidjus Reidarje Sauilis, a tradition of Gothic Heathenry focused on continuing the divine legacy of the gods Gapt and Teiws. It is a reconstructed religion inspired by the beliefs and practices of the ancient Goths, who were in turn influenced by their neighbors across Europe and Eurasia.
The Reidarjos (Gothic for “riders”) are the eponymous Sun-Riders of Sidjus Reidarje Sauilis. Each one is considered an inheritor of the gods’ divine legacy. As such, each Reidareis bears a responsibility toward their fellow Goths, both ancient and modern, and to their greater communities: to be charitable, champion causes of Gothic concern, make an honorable name for Heathens everywhere, and promote the education and normalization of polytheism.
To reconstruct and promote Gothic Heathenry, a modern polytheistic religion informed by the civic and religious ways of the pre-Christian Germanic peoples collectively known as the Goths.
To bring together likeminded people with a serious commitment to shaping the future of Sidjus Reidarje Sauilis, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.
To provide knowledge about the worldview and culture of the ancient Goths, as well as promote the normalization of polytheistic belief systems in the modern world.
