  • Snorri Sturluson (1178 – September 23, 1241) was an Icelandic historian, poet and politician. He was twice lawspeaker at the Icelandic parliament, the Alþingi. An inmportant source for the followers of Odinism and Asatru, Sturluson was the author of the Younger Edda or Prose Edda, which is comprised of Gylfaginning ("the fooling of Gylfe"), a narrative of Norse mythology, the Skáldskaparmál, a book of poetic language, and the Háttatal, a list of verse forms. He was also the author of the Heimskringla, a history of the Norse kings that begins, in Ynglinga Saga with the legendary history, and moves through to early medieval Scandinavian history. He is also thought to be the author of Egils Saga.
  • As an historian and mythographer, Snorri is remarkable for proposing the hypothesis (in the Prose Edda) that mythological gods begin as human war leaders and kings whose funeral sites develop cults. As people call upon the dead war leader as they go to battle, or the dead king as they face tribal hardship, they begin to venerate the figure. Eventually, the king or warrior is remembered only as a god. He also proposed that as tribes defeat others, they explain their victory by proposing that their own gods were in battle with the gods of the others.
  • Snorri Sturluson (fils de Sturla), souvent appelé plus simplement Snorri, est né en 1179 à Hvamm en Islande. Sa lignée faisait partie de la haute aristocratie Islandaise et était respectée par tous, ses ancêtres remontant aux plus grands personnages des Sagas Islandaises, les Islendingasogur. Il serait bien trop long d'en faire la biographie ici mais nous retiendrons qu'il fut un maître dans l'art des lettres. Il laissera bien des écrits dont l'Edda, le plus important, avant de mourir, assassiné pour une sombre collusion politique par Gissur et ses sbires en l'an 1241, le 23 septembre pour être précis.
