In Thor, author Morgan Daimler sets about untangling the mythology and modern lore surrounding the most popular Norse deity, Thor.
Thor is an immensely popular God but also one of contradictions, whose complexity is sometimes underrated.
Often depicted as oafish, he was clever enough to outwit the dwarf Alviss (All—wise). A god of storms and thunder, he brought fertility and blessed brides at weddings and although a defender of civilization and order, he usually travelled with a trickster deity.
Thor is an introductory book that examines both history and mythology, untangling older beliefs from modern pop—culture.
This book is part of the Pagan Portals series from Moon Books.
