Issue Cover

All About History  |  Issue 57  


THE CULT OF THOR
This is the first issue of All About History not to boast a historical figure on the cover. Instead, The thunder god Thor is probably better known these days as one of the Avengers in the Marvel comic books and movies. However, more
than just a superhero, he was worshipped as an actual deity by the Vikings. In Viking sources, Thor is usually described as the son of Odin by the giantess Jörð, who was an earth-mother figure, her name literally meaning ‘earth’, similar to the Greek Gaea. While Odin was the Allfather, the king of the Norse pantheon, his unpredictability and irrationality made him a god to be feared and appeased rather than admired and imitated. Thor was a mighty warrior who could level mountains with his hammer Mjölnir, however, had a common touch that gave him a mass appeal.

Every issue of this popular magazine covers a huge range of topics, from Ancient Civilisation to the Cold War and beyond, with stunning photos and illustrations that really bring history to life.
