the dictionary of norse mythology


ALFODR All-Father A name for odin used fre-quently in the poetic edda, skaldic poetry, and snorri sturluson's work. Odin is recognized as the father of all the aesir gods and goddesses, but he has this role in name only. He is also known as the father of all dead warriors. In addition Odin can be consid-ered the father of all human beings, for when Odin and his brothers, vili and ve, found the shapes of the first man and woman, ask and embla, on a beach, they gave them the spirit, mental powers, and warmth they needed to become fully human.
