I think you misunderstood my point, the lessons of this particular
clan would have become part of the knowledge of the common religion.
After all it seems very likely that the lightbringers would have had a
Flesh Man representative with them even though I don't recall a
specific mention in the story.
Other clans would benefit, perhaps even Heortling clans. The transfer
of knowledge need not have been entirely one-way and when it says the
Hagolings told their own survival story it implies that it was not.
I am less clear whether Flesh Man ever was the common magic religion
this far north or whether there were two common magic religions with
an amount of cross-fertilisation of ideas. The lists of talents for
the Heortlings and Tarshites are remarkably similar.
