Dan'l, I think I'm getting your posts before Andy's, so excuse me for 
reacting to him through you.

Anyway, what exactly is this "dyarchical male/female European 
pantheon"?  Are we talking about the Horned God & Lady thing?  I thought it 
had been pretty well established that the so-called Old Religion was mostly 
invented by Gerald Gardner.  There were multitudes of local practices and 
beliefs across the whole of Europe, and lots of them were similar, but 
Wotan is not Zeus is not Lud.

Oh, and to answer your question, Asatru is a contemporary revival of Old 
Norse pre-Christian religion.
