The increase of membership in Icelands Ásatrúarfélagid (en. The Ásatrú Fellowship) has already been staggering in the last one and a half decade. But the latest numbers illustrate an ever stronger growth. Over the last three years more than a thousand Icelanders became registered members in the Ásatrú Fellowship – an increase of astounding 50%. Altogether more than 3,500 people are now part of the Ásatrúarfélag. This corresponds to slightly over 1% of Icelands total population, therefore making the island easily the most heathen country in Europe. The construction of the first heathen hof in a thousand years (anticipated completion: 2018) has the potential to boost the growth even futher.
