Eastern Shore of Virginia,
#^Hungarian origin of the Nibelungen Lied
Foreword It would be a shame to allow this very interesting little study to sink into oblivion, not only because it discusses a 200 year-old literary question worthy of consideration and sheds light...
EGY One, unity, One-God
EGÉSZ Whole. The unity of the Universe.
IGAZ It is one. Truth.
ÉG The Universe
OK The Cause of the existing Universe, the Creator, which cannot be comprehended by the human mind.
ÜK Personification of the Ancient Cause: Ancient Father, Ancient Deity.
AGG Old. The chief deity of the people and his eternal existence was personified in the form of an old man. Only in Hungarian are the words for old (öreg) and eternal (örök) the same.
It is known that the older Germanic form of ODIN’s name is written as YGG (see for example the book of the Swedish linguist, Frans G. Bengsston: “Röde Orm”). This name can be read as the Magyar IGG, or ÜGG and we see in both instances the Magyar words ÉG, EGY, ÜKK (Universe, God, Ancient). We have to refer here to the approximately 900 year-old literary relic, the Halotti Beszéd, where IG was the same as EGY.
