Death of the author 5 2, 3:39pm

@Fanouriou Well, Odin spent nine nights hanging from Yggdrasil with a spear piercing him to learn the secrets of death. Though I've seen a lot of speculation over how much that legend might have been influenced by the Crucifixion, given that pretty much all Norse mythology was written down after the Norse had converted to Christianity.
