Thread Name: Origins: Caedmon's Hymn
Subject: RE: BS: Caedmon's Hymn
Midgard (an anglicised form of Old Norse Miðgarðr; Old English Middangeard, Swedish and Danish Midgård, Old Saxon Middilgard, Old High German Mittilagart, Gothic Midjun-gards; "middle yard") is the name for Earth inhabited by and known to humans in early Germanic cosmology, and specifically one of the Nine Worlds in Norse mythology. It has been a part of NW European mythology for a long time. Both Caedmon and Tolkien borrowed from mythology. Asgard seems to have been changed a little by Caedmon.
