Hlín - Mighty Protectress

Post by Trollperle on Sun Jan 17, 2016 4:02 pm

According to Gylfaginning (Gylfaginning, The beguiling of Gylfi, The Younger Edda, 35, translation by Karl Simrock) Hlín is the 11th (Goddess of the) Æsir, - appointed to protect those whom the Goddess Frigg wished to protect from danger.

For others Hlín is but another name for the Goddess Frigg, herself (The Prophecy of the Völva, The Elder Edda, 53, as translated by Karl Simrock).

The Skalds used her name as a kenning for „woman“ in general. Do not mistake Hlín goðvefjar ("Hlín of velvet") as a weakling, for an iron fist might be sheathed in a velvet glove - and those who wrong her, will not even see it coming.

ENCHANTING!! It conjures images of a dark, mysterious forest and a mighty Dragon goddess moving through the shadows.

Fabulous bracelet  I love you
I may have to read the Edda again (although it's not an easy-to-read book)

Thank you for your lovely comments, my dears I love you

@ Fleur: I love the Edda, but I agree, it is not easy to read and without the comments I would only grasp a tiny bit of it. I love to browse it together with Karl Simrocks „Lexikon der Germanischen Mythologie“, he cites the passages for his entries and then they make much more sense to me (especially as I pick those that pique my interest in the first place - and then sometimes I can hardly stop Smile ) Especially all the kenningar are quite fascinating.
