The mid-11th century Gosforth Cross, located in Cumbria, England, has been described as depicting a combination of scenes from the Christian Judgement Day and the pagan Ragnarök. [34] The cross features various figures depicted in Borre style, including a man with a spear facing a monstrous head, one of whose feet is thrust into the beast's forked tongue and on its lower jaw, while a hand is placed against its upper jaw, a scene interpreted as Víðarr fighting Fenrir. [34] This depiction has been theorized as a metaphor for Christ's defeat of Satan. [38] Ledberg stone [ edit ] The Ledberg stone in Sweden as good, to stand in his stead.

Fenrir ( Old Norse ' fen-dweller') [3] or Fenrisúlfr (Old Norse "Fenrir's wolf", often translated "Fenris-wolf"), [4] also referred to as Hróðvitnir (Old Norse "fame-wolf") [5] and Vánagandr (Old Norse 'monster of the [River] Ván'), [6] is a wolf in Norse mythology. Fenrir, along with Hel and the World Serpent, is a child of Loki and giantess Angrboða. He is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda and Heimskringla, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, Fenrir is the father of the wolves Sköll and Hati Hróðvitnisson, is a son of Loki and is foretold to kill the god Odin during the events of Ragnarök, but will in turn be killed by Odin's son Víðarr. All these designations reflect a hierarchical, multiperspective experience of divinity.

Chinese traditional theology, which comes in different interpretations according to the classic texts, and specifically Confucian, Taoist, and other philosophical formulations, [20] is fundamentally monistic, that is to say, it sees the world and the gods who produce it as an organic whole, or cosmos. [21] The universal principle that gives origin to the world is conceived as transcendent and immanent to creation, at the same time. [22] The Chinese idea of the universal God is expressed in different ways. There are many names of God from the different sources of Chinese tradition. [23]Ebert, Roger.

Wolves were seen as both being negative and positive to the Norse people. On one hand, they can represent chaos and destruction (e.g. Fenrir, Skoll, and Hati), while on the other hand, they can also represent bravery, loyalty, protection, and wisdom.

Immortals, or xian, are seen as a variety of different types of beings, including the souls of virtuous Taoists, [38] gods, [38] [39] zhenren, [39] and/or a type of supernatural spiritual being who understood heaven. [40] Taoists historically worshipped them the most, although Chinese folk religion practitioners during the Tang dynasty also worshipped them, although there was more skepticism about the goodness, and even the existence, of xian among them. [40] The Morrigan is an ancient Irish (Celtic) goddess of life and death, wisdom, magic, shapeshifting, and war and also one of the Celtic wolf goddesses. She might have originally been three separate goddesses that eventually were merged into a triple-goddess. The Morrighan in her three aspects include Badh, Macha, and Nemain. The Morrighan is almost always seen as a fierce, aggressive goddess with a yearning for blood on the battlefield. She takes no prisoners, and shows little mercy to those who are her enemies. For those she loves – she will do whatever it takes to help them, including shapeshifting into various forms. One of those forms is in the shape of a large grey-red wolf, making her an ancient wolf goddess. Martin-Dubost, Paul (1997). Gaņeśa: The Enchanter of the Three Worlds.
