Skadi and Saint Helena

Skadi and Saint Helena

Saint Helena, sometimes Saint Helen of Sköfde (Elin av Skövde) (c. 1101-1160), was a Swedish local Catholic saint. She is considered to be the patroness saint of the town of Skövde, Sweden. But Skövde means Skadi´s Vi. Vi menas holy place. The Christians take over the cult of the Norse hunting Goddess and start to worship Helena.

Saint Helena’s day is the 31 of July. Many neopagans worship Skadi what day. Hail Skadi!
