Nordic mythology

Nordic mythology represents, just like all other myths, a deep-seated truth. Not a scientific truth about e.g. the creation of the world and human beings etc., but a truth about human existence, to be in the world. In this respect, the old Nordic myths and narratives can deliver wisdom and insight.

We shall read the old Nordic myths and narratives and try to interpret the good stories and see what they express of wisdom and truths.
