The EddaPedia

The eddapedia.org project was founded in the beginning of 2015 by Jóhann Örn Geirdal. The project aim is to collect all text and symbols from the old heathen world and information about the modern heathen world as well in one place. Eddapedia base is from Wikipedia articles and project Gutenberg. This project will contain all information about the heathen world and related data. Propaganda and hate against people do not belong here!

Edda

The term "Edda" Old Norse Edda, plural Eddur) applies to the Old Norse Prose Edda and has been adapted to fit the collection of poems known as the Poetic Edda which lacks an original title. Both works were written down in Iceland during the 13th century in Icelandic, although they contain material from earlier traditional sources, reaching into the Viking Age. The books are the main sources of medieval skaldic tradition in Iceland and Norse mythology.
