Swedish followers of the ancient nordic mythology Asatro are demanding burying grounds separate from church graveyards. Henrik Hallgren, president of Sweden’s Asatro association told the news agency TT that he had contacted the church’s cemetery administration to apply for suitable property. A church spokesman said that there are no real obstacles to grant burying grounds to non-Christian congregations, even if they are of heathen nature. Recently the authorities in Norway and Denmark announced that they will allow pagan burials for Asa worshippers.
