The Edda, which was written around 1220, is the most important source on the gods of the Vikings. It has been described as "one of the best story-books of the Middle Ages". The Viking Gods contains excerpts from this classical text in a new and readable translation. The Vikings believed that Odin and Thor and the other gods were immortal, and history has proven them right. Their names are mentioned by millions of people every day, as the days of the week are named after the Viking gods: Tuesday after Tyr; Wednedsay after Odin (or Wodin); Thursday after Thor and Friday after Frey. Everyone has heard of Thor and Odin, and many people are familiar with the names of other Viking Gods such as Frey and Freyja, Baldur, Nanna, Heimdall, and Bragi. Now you can read all about them.

This highly attractive book contains more than 30 line drawings by Lorenz Frolich (1820-1908), watercoloured by Eggert Petursson. The books in this series, with original, short texts have long established their popularity and appeal. These new and readable translations are presented in a handy and attractive format.
