Odin as Christ? Primer

This article provides some context for the main “Odin as Christ?” article. It is mainly based on Chapter 5 of ‘The Beginning of Horde Russia’ by A.T. Fomenko and G.V. Nosovsky,[0] who mainly reference the works of Snorri Sturluson.

Snorri Sturluson is believed to have been an Icelandic historian, poet, and politician who lived in the 12th-13th century.[2] He is believed to be the author of the ‘Prose Edda’.[3] There are seven surviving manuscripts of the Edda; three fragments, and four main manuscripts. These four manuscripts are the Codex Upsaliensis,[4] Codex Regius,[5] Codex Wormianus,[6] and the Codex Boreelianus Rheno-Trajectinus.[7]

The first manuscript is Codex Upsaliensis.[4] The earliest mention that I found of this manuscript is when Bishop Brynjólfur Sveinsson[22] donates the codex in 1639. Interestingly enough, this bishop was the one who in 1643 gave the name ‘Edda’ to the collection of Old Norse mythological and heroic poems, which is sometimes known as the Poetic Edda.[23] Shortly after this, in 1650, he requested from all the people residing in his diocese to gift or sell any old manuscripts to the King Frederick the Third. It was a direct result of this request that the important mediaeval Icelandic manuscript Codex Flateyensis[24] was discovered. Codex Upsaliensis seemingly appears to have surfaced out of obscurity in the 17th century.

The second manuscript is Codex Regius.[5] Prior to this codex arriving into the possession of Brynfólfur Sveinsson in 1643, nothing about its location was known. This is the manuscript which the bishop gifts to King Frederick III of Denmark in 1662. It surfaced out of obscurity in the 17th century.

The third manuscript is titled Codex Wormianus.[6] This codex was supposedly written in a Benedictine monastery in Iceland around 1350AD. Ole Worm supposedly received this codex in 1628 from Arngrímur Jónsson. The codex was transferred from Worm’s son to Árni Magnússon in 1706, and is today a part of the Arnamagnæan Manuscript Collection.[25] It surfaced out of obscurity in the 17th century.

The fourth and final manuscript is titled Codex Boreelianus Rheno-Trajectinus[7] This manuscript allegedly contains the four Gospels in Greek. There is supposedly no record of how this codex was obtained by Johann Boreel in the early 17th century. It allegedly remained in private care for over a century. Utrecht University has been its holding place since 1830. This MS surfaced out of obscurity in the 17th century.

All of the surviving MSS for the Prose Edda surfaced out of obscurity in the 17th century.

Note: This article was originally published on January 6th, 2019. I made a major update to it on November 11th, 2020 and took out a lot of the extra information which wasn’t really needed. I still have the references up, but the article is significantly shorter. I also took out all the images that were originally included.
