There was also the visit by Odin to the grave-mound of Wala - and the long
diction which he coaxed her to speak, despite her 'otherworldly condition'.
With regards to the 'Embla' was not the world emblett something to do with
the lance-wounds in the side of Jesus? Perhaps they refer to some sort of
sacrifice or sacrificial personage? One further thought - I seem to recall
there was some discussion (forget where I read it) that the earliest form
of 'servas rotae' or Servant of the Wheel of the sacred year was feminine,
or was a feminine deity - that the solar deity was earliest a female.
Can anyone give the appropriate legends, or textual information, please?
