It's peculiar that at the end of our epic it isn't the gods that judge mankind, it's the coming messiah that judges the god(s). It's also thematically interesting to me that it's a feminine princip that is the creator-god and that Man is born from Woman, when usually the feminine princip in the primordial sea is an agent of chaos.

And it's all the more odd because the compiler of the epic was a) a devout Lutheran and b) a serious misogynist.

I haven't left the house and the books since Sunday, rambling ahoy.
