Loki and Trickster Gods

By February 22, 2006

Follow me on:

I received the following question from email:
    " I am very curious about one thing - in Norse Loki is known as the trickster, yet, I find no evidence of "his" influence in other mythologies. IE - Greek, Roman, etc.

    Am I wrong in assuming that the Norse mythologies are the only ones addressing a god such as Loki? If not - who are they and why are they so hard to find?

    If you can help me with this question I would be ever grateful.

    Thank you in advance."

In response, I recommended that he look at my article on the Greek trickster god Hermes: Hermes: A Thief, Inventor, and Messenger God and listed the Wikipedia list of trickster gods listed under "trickster". List of Trickster Gods.
