Sacrifice of Balder

Some people have compared Balder to Jesus. This artist certainly does. But unlike those guys who killed Jesus in the Bible, I didn’t mean to kill Balder, I swear. [W.G. Collingwood, “The Death of Balder,” in The Elder or Poetic Edda, ed. and trans. by Olive Bray, 1908. p. 239.] (tagged: Hod (Höðr), Balder)
