Bargaining for Balder

Frigg sent Hermod to Hel to bargain for Balder's return to the world of the living. After some pestering, I finally agreed to release him if they could get everything on earth to weep for Balder. They couldn't. [MS SÁM 66, 75r, Árni Magnússon Institute, Iceland. 18th Century] (tagged: Hel, Hermod, Balder)
