* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Books and (Legitimate) Websites Wanted!
« on: March 06, 2012, 03:27:22 pm »
During a free period in between my classes I usually attempt to find different websites and books for research into various religions. Albeit my interests lie mostly in Asatru/Norse Pagan, I am always searching for new sources and religions to look into, ideal example being my recent research into Druidry (Sparked by a fantastic band I listen to, Eluveitie).

Any websites or books that somebody could link me to would be greatly appreciated, provided they aren't just some bogus stuff just thrown onto a site and hailed as the truth.

Many Thanks!

I'm not sure exactly what you want here? Material on Druidry?

Not exactly. Sorry I had a bit too much coffee in me when I wrote this. .What I meant is that i've always been interested in any religion that isn't widely known about, or at least that I don't know about personally. The example I used was Druidry, since while I had nothing to do for a spell and was listening to Eluveitie I decided to go on that. Now, I have a few websites and a book on it because of my interests in that particular religion as a whole. Point being, I would like to expand in a way related to that.

I suggest you check out our website - the Pagan Primer would be a good place to start.  Also the teen FAQ - if you're not a teen, you can just skip the teen stuff.  Most of it's not age-specific.

Also, the Reconstructionism section of our web site has lists of suggested books.

The Internet Sacred Text Archive should be in any religion researcher's bookmarks.

Thanks for the suggestions, I usually have a limited time for actual research since i'm usually writing papers and whatnot for school, and this entire site has a huge amount of information stored on it. I'll be sure to check out all of the posted areas!

For Asatru I really like this website: http://heathengods.com/temple/modules/library/
They have a lot of free book downloads. I highly suggest "The Pentagram and the Hammer" if you're into comparing and contrasting social aspects of religion (I couldn't stop reading), and they also have a bunch of different versions of things like Beowolf and the Poetic and Prosaic Eddas. Other than the free books the site doesn't have much to offer... the forum is awful.

That's a whole lotta stuff, thanks!
