In Psalm 112 of the Paris Psalter we find a clear reference to the English having recognised Ingwe as Krist. Although this is not stated outright the clear inference is there, and this is not the only work where the two are seen as one individual, or at least one archetype. In this work there is reference to haelynd drihten which translates as 'saviour lord'; there is also a statement heahita haeledha cynnes which is translated as 'highest hero-kin'. The latter gives us a clear clue to this since the Ing-Rune stanzas of the Old English Rune-Poem refer to Ing as 'The Hero'. The Psalm also uses the term Ingetheod meaning 'Ing's People' or 'Ing's Folk'.
What is rather astounding about this is that Ingwe is clearly a very important god to the English, and yet scholars have, in the main, overlooked him altogether, except as the Ingvi-Frey of Norse Mythology. But it would seem that Ingvi-Frey means 'Lord Ing', in which case the original name of The Hero-God was Ingwe; even if we translate this as 'Son of the Lord' this would make no difference whatever. We have also the weapons which bear the name 'Gift of Ing', and also the reference in Beowulf to a sword named Ingelafe which means 'Ing-Bequest' ('Ing-Leaving' in a literal translation).
Although it does mean repeating some of the stuff that I have already gone over, sometimes over and over, but I would like to go through this again to link the ideas with new ones which are very important to us in our struggle for freedom. In the past I have likened the Inge Archetype to that of the Heimdall Archetype, and there is good reason to see this having some foundation when we note the similarities between Ingwe and Agni and Heimdall and Agni. They may not be exactly the same, but they are likely both similar archetypes. There are problems with this, so firstly I shall note some interesting points to consider.
In Beowulf we have the lineage of Scef (Sheaf), Scyld (Shield) and Beow (Barley), and it is thus perhaps no coincidence that Ingvi Frey in Norse Mythology has a servant named Byggvir whose name can mean 'to settle', 'to cultivate', and is linked to the word bygg meaning 'barley'. Byggvir and Beyla (Bee) help Ingvi-Frey with his work, which is clearly (from the myths) connected to the World Mill - Grotte or Grotti. Ingvi-Frey is called Master of the Grotte, and the World Mill is (according to Viktor Rydberg) under the protection of the Vanir-Gods (Waene).
The Long Man of Wilmington is Waendal who I have shown to be most likely the Mundilfore of Norse Myth - the Turner of the World Mill. The son of Mundilfore is Heimdall, who he sent down to mankind at the end of the Golden Age to bring to them agriculture, fire and the Caste System or Divine Order of the Gods. This can be seen when we see Heimdall and Scef as being one and the same archetype. In Vedic India this role was that of Manu, who was the first to use the Divine Fire with Bhrigu, when this was brought down by Agni to Earth. Manu and Agni are thus connected. Strictly speaking Mundilfore turns the handle of the World Mill since his name means 'handle' (from mondull meaning 'handle of mill', which itself stems from manthula meaning 'swing-tree', itself from manthati meaning 'to swing', to 'twist', or 'to bore'). The word manth refers to fire-by-friction.
Agni is sent to mankind by his father (or symbolic father), Mataricvan, and sails over the waters just as Scef does, coming amongst the Bhrigurians, the Sons of Bhrigu. I will not go over this again but there are many parallels between Agni and Heimdall, and here are just a few -
- Agni is the 'husband of wives' just as Heimdal fathers the three Aryan Castes.
- Agni brought the Divine Fire, and taught man to live a fixed life around the hearth. Heimdal is a Fire-God, and Ingwe gives his name to the 'Inglenook' which is next to the hearth-fire.
- Agni is the 'pure, white god' and Heimdall is the 'Whitest of Gods'.
- Agni is, like Heimdall, the 'Watcher of the Gods'.
- They are both associated with White Horses (Ingwe and Agni).
- Both Agni and Heimdall are called 'The Fast Traveller', the latter being no doubt Rata-tosk who travels up and down the World Tree as 'The Messenger of the Gods'. Heimdall is also 'The Borer' when he aids Woden in his quest to get the Sacred Mead from Knit Mountain. (Both rati and rata refer to travelling, usually in the sense of 'boring' - which hints that Rata-Tosk moves up and down the World Tree in a spiral movement.
The Twin Spears are seen one pointing upwards, one downwards, suggesting the up-and-down movement along the World Tree, or the up-and-down movement along the Spinal Column - the movement of Agni-Inga as the Fiery-Serpent. The 'Dancing-Warrior' (Woden) holds within himself the Balance of Light and Darkness (the Solar-Lunar Horns). The spear held by the Wolf-Warrior points at the sole of the foot of the Warrior-God, which must have importance though this I must admit is not clear to me.
- King Ingvi was the first ruler of Sweden (Historia Norwegie). He was the father of Neorth, and the Father of Frey.
- In the Skjoldunga Saga he is the brother of Scioldus, and son of Odin.
- In Snorri Yngvi is a Swedish King of Trojan descent, a son of Odin.
- In the Heimskrimla Saga we read 'Freyr was called Yngvi by another name'.
