was the Nordic God of thunder and lightning, a powerful
warrior akin to Zeus or perhaps Hercules.
Thor was widely worshiped in pre-Christian Europe, and
until the 11th century, shrines in Scandinavia and even
England were still devoted to his worship. Thursday derives
from his holy day, "Thor's Day".
Thor's hammer brought lightning and thunder, and Thor's
hammers as talismans were revered as sacred relics and
power sources, particularly for warriors about to enter
the field of battle.
