Liturgy 1: Cultural Deviations

Describe possible cultural variances for elements discussed in questions 3 through 14 above.

The Core Order of Ritual was designed to be adaptable by the various ADF hearth cultures.  We have already seen how, for instance, the Germanic kin typically view the cosmos as ninefold rather than threefold, and that the Greek kin often use a rock rather than a tree as the axis mundi.   The possibilities are really quite endless, but can include such elements as; omitting either the tree or well from the sacred centre if they do not have a cultural significance, the types of divination used (e.g., Norse runes vs Celtic ogham vs Roman augury), and differences in the number and form of Kindred invoked.
