[[Fil:Flateyjarbok.jpg|left|175px]]
'''Þiðreks saga''' is an Old Norse compilation of various German narratives and poems with reference to the historic king Theoderic the Great and other historical and legendary figures. In the narratives of this saga we meet several persons known from the Poetic Edda and the Nibelungenlied such as the artisan Völundr and Sigurd Fafnersbane. The saga contains a number of more or less separate sagas and lays such as Velent's saga, Herburt's þáttr, Niflungasaga, and the Song of Hildebrand. – The saga was composed in Norway in the middle of the 13th Century and became widespread all over the Nordic countries. In the 15th Century an unknown author wrote a Swedish version of the saga. It is this Old Swedish edition we present here.</FONT COLOR=darkblue>

This is the second volume of Finnur Jónsson's large edition of The Poetic Edda from 1932. Until then several German but no Scandinavian annotated versions had been published. Finnur Jónsson thought it was high time that the Nordic countries had one of their own. Volume two contains the heroic poems in Old Norse with extensive and explanatory comments. Apart from the 18 heroic poems the author gives a number og critical remarks to each poem. – This is a publication from '''HEIMSKRINGLA Reprint''' and is available '''[[Heimskringla Reprint| here]]'''. </FONT COLOR=darkblue>

This booklet contains two essays written by the Danish scholar Vilhelm Grønbech.

The second paper ''Religionsskiftet i Norden'' – deals with the unique transition from paganism to Christianity as it went on in Scandinavia and Iceland. <br><br>Published by '''HEIMSKRINGLA Reprint''' and available '''[[Heimskringla Reprint| here]]'''. </FONT COLOR=darkblue>

Furthermore we want to emphasize that a text on the Internet should always be compared to the original before it is used in books (quotes, references etc.)

Q: I am not able to get access to all the pages as I am being asked for a username and a password. Can I get a password from you?
A: Unfortunately not. For copyright reasons a small part of our text material is password-protected and inaccessible to the general public. In individual cases I may give restricted access to the password-protected collection if someone is contributing with relevant text material to the collection.

Q: How can I contribute to the project?
A: The HEIMSKRINGLA - project needs practical as well as financial contributions. See the information page about financing, voluntary proofreading and technical assistance. All contributions will be received with gratitude.

Q: I am a student who needs help with my assignment. Can you help me?
A: Unfortunately we cannot do that. Consult your teacher or local librarian. You are of course free to make use of the material from heimskringla.no for your assignment: if you do so, please remember to make references. Generally speaking, however one must be very careful in using sources from the Internet for assignments and other schoolwork, as there is much misinformation on the Internet.

Q: Can you send me a message when a page is updated with new material?
A: All information about updates and other relevant matters can be found on our Facebook page.

Q: The text I am looking for is not to be found in the "Norrøne Tekster og Kvad" - project. Will you be so kind as to publish it for me?
A: The aim is to make "Norrøne Tekster og Kvad" as comprehensive as possible. In practice the greatest limitation is the acquisition of text material. It goes without saying that such a wide-ranging project cannot be completed in all fields at the same time. Which areas are finished first and how broadly or well the coverage is, will depend on who is contributing to the project at a given time.

Sp.: Is an App available for the material on Heimskringla?
Sv.: No unfortunately not. But by clicking on Mobilvisning at the bottom of the page, you get a format that is customised for mobile or tablet.
