Thor is a god of might, and his symbols are powerful; raging storms, oaken trees and his thunderous hammer Mjölnir. He is also a god of healing and fertility. He is easily the most popular of the Norse pantheon today, and was popular even in the past, particularly during the medieval Viking age. As the peoples of Scandinavia were Christianized, many resisted, preferring their old gods. Those who did identified themselves with symbol of the stylized hammer of Thor. His most enduring contribution to modernity is Thursday - or ‘’Thors Day’’ - named in his honor.
Thor was a warrior champion for the people first and foremost, and his tales abound with magnanimous triumphs over his foes. He was however, fated to die in battle with the monstrous world serpent Jörmungandr - the two would kill one another in the apocalpytic battle of Ragnarok.
