Welcome to Sacred Texts, the Internet archive of texts involving religion, mythology, legends and folklore and the esoteric. I am starting you all on the About page of this, because I think they fully explain, in a way I could never summarize, what this site is here for and why it includes the texts it does.
After checking that out, click the Home link at the top of the page and you’ll be whisked off to the index page where you can see what was most recently added in the center. I am a huge mythology junkie. I love studying myths and I’m always looking for new resources of information on the Web, so I was delighted when I found such a large database of texts!
On the left hand side of the index page, you’ll find the heading of Topics. Under that, you will find the listing of all the categories on the site. Click the category you’d like to learn more about. For example, I chose Icelandic.
Under this topic, I found these categories: The Eddas, The Sagas and Modern Retellings. Each of those also have sub-categories that you can check out. Under The Eddas, I chose Old Norse Poems and I found an interesting one that had been translated and was about riddles.
On the right hand side of the index page, you will find the Featured Text of the Day, as well as, four other highlighted texts. Pretty neat, huh?!
This is an amazing archive of texts that could be used in your everyday life for many reasons. You could teach your children about myths, do research for school projects, do research for writings or debates and so much more. Check it out!
