Dominus Ingui: 63 adorations

For a few months now, there’s been a stream of adorations in the polytheistic blogosphere. After the initial 99 Adorations to Dionysus at the House of Vines, many others have taken the idea and produced posts of up to 150 adorations to one or more deities. Sannion is keeping an updated list and Maris has already posted her version dedicated to Ingvi-Frey here.

Since I’m writing a series on a Latinized cult of Ingui, I thought I should take the opportunity and make a set, honouring the god and, at the same time, supplying modern polytheists with material they can use in their prayers and ceremonies. Some are entirely born out of my own UPG: Rainbowed One, for instance, comes from the modern perception that Freyr is a gay friendly god and, being a Vanir, is much more open to an “alternative” sexuality. It’s similar to the Jingle God, in reference to the description of effeminate priests with bells. Besides, add sun to a bit of rain, two things Snorri associates with Frey, and you get a rainbow. So without further ado, I give you the 63 adorations of Lord Ingui:

I adore you, Lord Ingui
I adore you, Son of Njord
I adore you, Son of Nerthus
I adore you, Brother of Freya

This pretty much concludes this series. The final piece will be a drawing of the god, much like the revealing of a sacred image after the presentation of the deity. In the meantime, I’m planning more adorations to other gods, namely Silvanus, Mercury, and Khnum.
