I added the links in the text themselfs so you dont have to look true hundreds of pages to find what you need . I also experimented with tagclouds , since i found that the normal pages do not get found by search engine’s , only the blog posts do ( told you i am a noob on webpage creation lol ) . Like always , if you find any errors or fuck ups from me , feel free to send me a message . Thank you for visiting and i hope the gods keep you and your kin safe from the virus .
Today i added the last missing pages of the prose edda ( i think and hope ) .
I tried to make a page for all the smaller saga’s that get reffered to also .
If everything works like i planned , you should now be able to find these sacred writings in the Prose edda section in the drop down menu or the page of the Prose edda .
- Háttatal – (Only in old norse since i cant seem to find a complete and correct English translation)
- Viðauki I: Nafnaþulur
- Viðauki II: Skáldatal
- Heithreksgátur – Heithrek’s Riddles
- Hrafnsmól -The lay of Harold
- Eiríksmál – The lay of Eric
- Hákonarmál – The lay of Hákon.
I made it also that you can click the links that point to The Poetic Edda or the Heimskringla for faster reference . They should all open in a new tab . I hope this way i can help some of you to find the text you need without have to search 50 webpages that all have some fragments of it .
You will still find some words in the texts that are cursief and bold , those are for me to remind me that i need to look for more info on them . But most are hard to find but i wont give up lol.
If by any chance any of you could provide me with a complete and correct translation of the Hattatal you would have my deepest respect and gratitude .
If you should find some errors please let me know because the reason i made these pages are to help people to find the correct info they seek .
I hope you find these pages usefull and goodnight , i hope you and your kin are in good health and .
Today i added the pages :
Also made a page for the goddess Eir . Eir is the goddess of protection, clemency , help and mercy .This page is the first of many about the gods and godesses and give’s some basic info , example prayers and info on how to do blot for Eir .
People are searching to coop with this corona virus and perhaps some people can find some comfort .
I hope you are all safe and may the gods watch and guard you and your loved ones .
In the last days all we hear and talk about is the corona virus , its normal that people worry because it is a nasty bitch virus .
But what i find disturbing is the fact the humanity can be seen on its best and worst side .
People are hoarding and plundering the store’s , alot of times the weaker get forgotten , like the elder and sick . The healthy would even push the elder and weak out of there way !!! People who are doing there part to fight this crisis and help others find nothing in store’s when they finally get some rest just because the hoarders and cowards looted everything .Where is the justice in that ? How can people alow that ?
If you follow and liv by the nine noble values NNV , you see them trampled everywhere .
There seems to be no honor left with some people ! Courage is gone with alot of people to , people are hidding away , again forgetting about the weaker ones . Industriousness and discipline are gone also .
I have bin a soldier for a large part of my life , and learnd alot about survival . But now its seems that all that ive learned whas a lie lol , you dont need shelter , water and food to survive , plain toiletpaper is the way to go !!!!!
If this worldwide crisis proves anything is that when there would be a war someday , it will be eatch for there own !! No courage left , no honor in most people anymore . Discipline is something people vaguely remember .
I hope the gods and ancestors are watching us all and see what we as a humanity have become .
In this chapter you can see alot of how , why and when people converted to cristianity from Heathenism. This chapter consist out of 123 parts .
With all the troubles around the virus that is spreading i did not have alot of time to add extra content in the past days . Will get better again soon and add the other chapters of Heimskringla to
Today i started with working on the pages of the Heimskringla . Will add all the chapters in the coming week .
Heimskringla (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈheimsˌkʰriŋla]) is the best known of the Old Norse kings’ sagas. It was written in Old Norse in Iceland by the poet and historian Snorri Sturluson (1178/79–1241) c. 1230. The name Heimskringla was first used in the 17th century, derived from the first two words of one of the manuscripts (kringla heimsins, “the circle of the world”).
Heimskringla is a collection of sagas about Swedish and Norwegian kings, beginning with the saga of the legendary Swedish dynasty of the Ynglings, followed by accounts of historical Norwegian rulers from Harald Fairhair of the 9th century up to the death of the pretender Eystein Meyla in 1177. The exact sources of his work are disputed, but included earlier kings’ sagas, such as Morkinskinna, Fagrskinna and the twelfth century Norwegian synoptic histories and oral traditions, notably many skaldic poems. Snorri had himself visited Norway and Sweden. For events of the mid-12th century, Snorri explicitly names the now-lost work Hryggjarstykki as his source. The composition of the sagas is Snorri’s.
The first 2 chapters are already done and available .
Every part of The Volsunga Saga is now added to the menu .
The Völsunga saga (often referred to in English as the Volsunga Saga or Saga of the Völsungs) is a legendary saga, a late 13th century poetic rendition in the Icelandic language of the origin and decline of the Völsung clan (including the story of Sigurd and Brynhild and destruction of the Burgundians).
The saga covers themes including the power struggles among Sigurd’s ancestors; Sigurd’s killing of the dragon Fafnir; and the influence of the cursed ring Andvaranaut.
Richard Wagner used the Volsunga sagas as an inspiration in Der Ring des Nibelungen .
But the most known part of this play must be this ; Ride of the Valkyries .
This has bin used by almost every media possible , movie’s , serie’s and so on …….And most people dont know this is based on a Heathen saga . The most legendary use of this song is in the movie Apocalypse now .
The Ride Of The Valkyries” is the popular term for the prelude to Act III of Die Walküre, the second of the four operas by German composer Richard Wagner that comprise The Ring of the Nibelungs (German Der Ring des Nibelungen). The Ring of the Nibelungs is a sequence of four musical dramas based on the Norse saga, which concerns the turbulent family history of a race of gods and their pursuit of a magical golden ring. It began as a single opera focusing on the death of Siegfried but grew into a vast cycle of four operas comprising Das Rheingold (The Rhine Gold), Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), Siegfried and Die Gotterdammerung (The Twilight of the Gods).
