“The Masks of Odin” opens up a time capsule which has been sealed for ages, revealing the knowledge of a remote antiquity when science, philosophy, and religion were one. Herein the Norse Edda is scrutinized and its tales of gods and heroes, elves and dwarfs are decoded, using Theosophical keys, to yield an overview of cosmic cycles of life on many levels of the World Tree. The myths contain ribald humor as well as grand inspiration. Elsa-Brita Titchenell’s commentary and her fresh translation of the Poetic or Elder Edda provide a key to understanding the timeless wisdom of the bards of antiquity.
