The Edda poems were written down in the Old Norse language by Icelandic scholars during the 11th to 13th centuries AD. They contain a poetical, metaphorical lore about Cosmos and the fate of mortals on the path to immortality. A lore that is, despite having been transmitted in writing by medieval monks and scholars, deeply steeped in ancient Pre-Christian beliefs.
