Icelandic Fairy Tale

Recommended Posts

LOL I spelled Iceland wrong in the title of this thread, anyways here is an Icelandic Fairy Tale about how Elves came into being. There are a lot of similarities with this story and the actual story of secondary midwayers These "hidden people" are one of the more popular superstitious beliefs in Iceland.

 

 

"Once upon a time, God Almighty came to visit Adam and Eve. They received him with joy, and showed him everything they had in the house. They also brought their children to him which he found promising and full of hope. Then He asked Eve whether she had no other children than these whom she had showed him. She said "None." But it so happened that she had not finished washing them all, and being ashamed to let God see them dirty, she had hidden the unwashed ones. Of course God knew, and there for said angrily to her, "What man hides from God, God will hide from man."

 

These unwashed children became invisible, and later found a home in mounds, hills, and rocks. From these are the elves descended, but we men from those of Eve's children whom she had openly and frankly shown to God. And it is only by the will and desire of the elves themselves if humans can ever see them.

 

 

The hidden people can be either friendly or hostile towards humans."

Great story!

 

I never heard it before and it talk really looks like midwayers are described in it.

Now I wonder if there are similar stories in other cultures?

In last past few weeks I'm watching ancient aliens series on history channel. When you put this in TUB context it looks very interesting

Yea its such a neat story, if we just substitute Adam for Adamson and Eve for Ratta it looks even better :). They had it so close though. Interesting how stories can get passed down thousands of years while still having a large thread of truth.

The moment I read of the midwayers and the rebel midwayers, my mind flashed AH HA!! I'm Gaelic and my wife is Norse (if you go back far enough in multiple family lines) and our traditions abound with the faere folk. The king of the elves in norse fables is Van. And these midway creatures are just that in folklore. These are ancient traditions or fables to be sure. But it was only 2000 years ago the mischief making rebels no longer walked among us. To be sprited is to become lost by following such a mischief maker into the wood.

Awesome find, Scott! I noticed that you have been cross-referencing excerpts from Ubook and other writings. Is this your research or Chris has revealed these findings on his show (I have not tuned in, in a while)? Making the connection between Elves and Midwayers adds much more texture to the latter's narrative.

 

It is good to see everyone. After the third week of May, I will have a few months of time to spare. Looking forward to building with the community again :D

Unfortunately, I have not had any significant time to listen to the broadcasts. However, in a few more weeks I will have the summer months to play with :-) I am looking forward to catching up on his lessons!
