Why did the Germanics believe into Ragnarök? In Christian mythology the revelation is basically there to fear the people from going against the Christian way and otherwise ending up in hell. But in Germanic mythology I thought the idea of ascending to Valhalla goes back to the Viking age, because the Vikings wanted something to rival the Christian heaven. Before that there was only Hel, so you getting to the death world after dying was considered as inevitable and you basically just prayed to not have bad luck while still living, for example by not being hunted by Wiedergänger, so what was the point of Ragnarök originally?
