This volume deals with the myths and legends of the Teutonic peoples. These evolved from primitive beliefs, and have been handed down from generation to generation and from century to century in the folk literature of oral tradition. They survive to us in folk tales, divine and heroic lays, and in sagas and epic narratives. In the north the myths about the gods persisted longest and had fullest growth, owing to the slow advance of Christianity, which met with obstinate resistance for over two centuries after the conversion of the southern Teutons…….. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900’s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
