the dictionary of norse mythology


GESTA DANORUM A 16-volume history of the Danish people from prehistoric days to the 13th century written by saxo grammaticus, a Danish scholar and historian. Books 10 through 16 are strictly historical, and scholars believe Saxo wrote these first. Books 1 through 9 record the oral myths and legends of the norse people, who included those living in denmark. Saxo apparently learned these stories from well-educated and well-traveled men from iceland. The Gesta Danorum is considered a very important source of information on the legends, myths, and religions of the Scandinavians.
