    Works by Jan de Vries

    First off I would like to apologize if this post in English offends any of the Dutch speaking members of the Althing, after all this is your forum. I wanted to post a thread here in order to ask if there were any members here who are aware of Jan de Vries' works on Germanic Mythology available in English? Specifically his two volume series "Altgermanische Religionsgeschichte". With De Vries being Dutch I thought maybe I'd be better off asking here before anywhere else on the forum.

    Thanks

    I have some of his work in Dutch, but I am unaware of any of it having been translated into English. "Altgermanische Religionsgeschichte" is, however, not Dutch but German.

    Jan de Vries is an excellent Dutch author.

    I've a few works of him in my collection



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_de_Vries

    Jan Pieter Marie Laurens de Vries (born February 11, 1890 in Amsterdam — died July 23, 1964 in Utrecht) was a Dutch scholar of Germanic linguistics and Germanic mythology, ordinarius 1926 to 1945 at Leiden University. He was more than sympathetic to the Nazi movement, even with the invasion of the Netherlands, but his works seem to have been free from National Socialist ideology.
    De Vries remains one of the most respected figures in Germanic Philology, and his two-volume Altgermanische Religionsgeschichte, though now a half-century old, remains an invaluable work on Germanic Religion.

    I've been wondering for a long time if this is an English translation of Altgermanische Religionsgeschichte.

    I'm quite sure it's the German text, without translation. Amazon just provides an English translation of the title.
