The Legend of Valhalla
In the pre-Christian mythology of tribes that inhabited northern Europe, particularly the Scandivavian countries, Valhalla was a paradise populated by gods and heroes. The Norse were a fierce people by necessity and evidently enjoyed combat and feasting, much as their descendants enjoy sports [the civilized remnant of enjoyable battle] and celebrations. Conceptions of Valhalla vary somewhat in the literature of various nationalities, but Odin is usually considered the highest god of the mythological system. According to the myth, the gods and heroes marched out each day through 540 doors of Valhalla, 500 men abreast, to engage in physical combat. They returned each night and all their wounds were healed. They then feasted in Odin’s Hall, as the god Odin’s honored guests. The symbol used here and at the entry to Valhalla is a replica of Odin’s War Helmet.
