The Edda is not a Germanic Bible

The Edda, a collection of poems from about four centuries, isn’t a “Germanic bible”, no doctrine, nobody attached truth to the stories, no priest taught from it, the Germanic people didn’t have holy books. Many last heathen Germanic people like the Icelandic farmers probably barely heared about the unfaithful Odin and certainly couldn’t honour him or see him as the peak of their religion. An “Edda-Faith” has never existed.

Interested in germanic heathenry, lore, original fairy- and folktales, shamanism and lots of other related worldly stuff. I walk and cycle alot in nature, read, play various instruments etc.
