the dictionary of norse mythology


SAEMUND SIGFUSSON Saemund the Wise, Saemund the Learned 1056-1133 Icelandic historian and Catholic priest author of an important history of the kings of Norway that has been lost. Later authors made use of Saemund's history and dis-cussed its importance in their own works.Before 1900, literary scholars and experts believed Saemund wrote the poetic edda, a collec-tion of ancient Norse poetry found in the codex regius. They referred to these poems as Saemunds Edda. Based on detailed studies of the language and style of these old poems, experts no longer believe that Saemund had any connection to the Poetic Edda.
