the dictionary of norse mythology


SUN AND MOON The children of mundil-fari, who named his daughter sol, which means sun, and his son mani, which means moon. Older norse poems identify Mundilfari as the father of these children but do not discuss where he lived or what type of being he was. The 13th-century Ice-landic poet snorri sturluson in his prose edda described Mundilfari as a human father. According to Snorri, the gods grew angry with this presumptuous human, stealing his children and putting them to work in the sky.
