Jotuns 26 4, 11:09pm

I've always wondered about this, were the Jotuns really symbols of chaos and nature? Or is this some sort of modern construction to add philosophy to the germanic religion?

In "primitive" religions (or rather, uncomplicated) the Gods are the powerful beings running the world, you sacrifice to them to get boons and avoid trouble. There's no metaphor for the conflict between humans and nature.

Once again, is this something actually based in old norse beliefs or something made up in modern times?
