5.3 Saxo Grammaticus

Some of the same source critical problems undercut the portrayal of northern history found in Saxo Grammaticus’s sixteen-book Gesta Danorum ‘Deeds of the Danes’, which adapts Scandinavian and Icelandic myth and legend into a multi-layered and often brilliantly creative work. Written by a Danish scholar, again a Christian, in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries, the narratives often contrast enormously with the versions of the stories (as they survive, at least) in the works of the Tylensium industria ‘diligent Icelanders’ who Saxo cites as a major source in his preface (Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, praefatio, 1, 4). Þórr appears in various incarnations in this text: as a god in several narratives, as a human in others, and as both in the stories of Thorkillus (Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, II, 2, 6; III, 2, 10; VI, 5, 3–5, 5; VIII, 14, 1–15, 13; XIII, 5, 5).

Þórr’s supposed counterpart Jove takes on a minor role in as well. His appearances and more oblique references to beings like the sky-dwelling Tonans ‘the Thunderer’ (Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, I, 6, 3) are often taken by scholars as substituting for Þórr (see Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, I, 12n), even though Saxo himself rejected this brand of interpretatio Romana in Book VI on the basis that, if Þórr is Jove and Óðinn Mercury, then Óðinn should be Þórr’s son, which directly contradicts with the Old Norse pantheon as the historian knew it (2015, VI, 5, 4). Saxo’s feelings on the subject may have changed over the perhaps twenty or thirty years it took to finish his text,5 and accepting that the deities represent different traditions does not, of course, preclude Saxo (or his sources) transferring attributes from one to another, whether for artistic or explicative purposes or as a subconscious result of the influence of interpretatio Romana. Nevertheless, Tonans remains most probably an allusion to Jove, who was popularly denoted Jupiter Tonans ‘thundering Jupiter’ (see Section 5.2), aimed at an audience with an education in the classics. No internal evidence supports the supposition that it refers to Þórr – the god is not mentioned by name (as he is elsewhere in Gesta Danorum: Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, II, 2, 6; III, 2, 10; VI, 5, 2–5, 4; VII, 2, 3; VIII, 14, 15) and nor are any major associations, barring the possible exception of thunder.

5.3 Saxo Grammaticus

Some of the same source critical problems undercut the portrayal of northern history found in Saxo Grammaticus’s sixteen-book Gesta Danorum ‘Deeds of the Danes’, which adapts Scandinavian and Icelandic myth and legend into a multi-layered and often brilliantly creative work. Written by a Danish scholar, again a Christian, in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries, the narratives often contrast enormously with the versions of the stories (as they survive, at least) in the works of the Tylensium industria ‘diligent Icelanders’ who Saxo cites as a major source in his preface (Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, praefatio, 1, 4).

Þórr’s supposed counterpart Jove takes on a minor role in as well. His appearances and more oblique references to beings like the sky-dwelling Tonans ‘the Thunderer’ (Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, I, 6, 3) are often taken by scholars as substituting for Þórr (see Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, I, 12n), even though Saxo himself rejected this brand of interpretatio Romana in Book VI on the basis that, if Þórr is Jove and Óðinn Mercury, then Óðinn should be Þórr’s son, which directly contradicts with the Old Norse pantheon as the historian knew it (2015, VI, 5, 4).

Nevertheless, Tonans remains most probably an allusion to Jove, who was popularly denoted Jupiter Tonans ‘thundering Jupiter’ (see Section 5.2), aimed at an audience with an education in the classics. No internal evidence supports the supposition that it refers to Þórr – the god is not mentioned by name (as he is elsewhere in Gesta Danorum: Saxo Grammaticus 2015, vol. 1, II, 2, 6; III, 2, 10; VI, 5, 2–5, 4; VII, 2, 3; VIII, 14, 15) and nor are any major associations, barring the possible exception of thunder.

The Jove of Book XIII is a more likely stand-in for Þórr than Tonans. Saxo depicts a temple unlike any other in the stories of northern religions, in which worshippers beat Mjǫllnir-like carpenters’ tools – inusitati ponderis malleos, quos Iouiales uocabant ‘unusually heavy implements known as Thor’s hammers’ – in imitation of the sounds of and the act they perceived as creating thunder (2015, vol. 2, XIII, 5, 5). In spite of Saxo’s attitude to interpretatio Romana, which convinces Lasse Christian Arboe Sonne that no god but Jove is being invoked here (2013, p. 171), the title Jove remains ambiguous – ambiguous enough that Peter Fisher has not quibbled over rendering the Latin’s Jove as Thor in the quote above.
