The word "Seiþur" is an old Norse word meaning, depending on what source I consult, "magic" or "mores" in the sense of a daily religious practice. The faeries don't have Gods as such although some of them believe the spirit of the Ancestor watches over them, or at least that they can survive anything the Ancestor did. A "Seiþabyggelse" or building for "Seiþur" in either sense of the word isthe closest the faeries can come to describing a church. A bit like the Grimborg, where magic happens, and a bit like the Shrine of the Ancestor, where people go for common ritual observances. By the way, there's only one Shrine, but many local Grimborgs.
