Gylfaginning is the first part of Snorri Sturluson's Edda, and contains the most extensive and coherent account of Scandinavian mythology that exists from the Middle Ages. The prologue that accompanies it develops a surprisingly rational theory about the origin of heathen religions which is of great interest for the history of ideas in medieval Scandinavia.
