HEDENDOM SNORRE 13

Snorri XIII.  – Paganism – 

"Representation of the god Thor.” In pagan times the godi was a pagan "priest” who was responsible for the blot (sacrifice). According to the Laws of the Free State, the powers of the godi were  equal. When Christianity was introduced the "godis” became secular chieftains. Iceland needed with this structure no military defence, being more a union of little independent states.
