      To Kimberly Dawn,

      Your Gothic ancestors? Very interesting.
      Could you tell a little bot more about this
      ancestry?

      With great probability the Gothic religion
      before arianism, the Christian religion
      of the Ostrogoths and Visigoths, was
      that of the Northern Germanics:

      Or quoting Felix Dahn:

      "Die lichten Goetter heissen mit bedeutungs-
      tiefem Namen Asen = Anses, die Tragbalken,
      Stuetzen des Himmels, der natuerlichen und
      sittlichen Ordnung der Welt zugleich".

      Gothically
