This work has the ambition to arouse interest in the goddess Freyja and her function in the Old Norse religion which is part of our cultural heritage. Glimpses of bygone myths from forgotten times open up an absorbing view of man's hopeful belief in the power of gods and goddesses. Freyja, acting in many varying functions, holds a prominent position in the Old Norse pantheon as an independent and powerful goddess.
