i he old Norse logi, (Gcr. Lohe,) "flame," allied to the
Latin luc-eo, to "shine," and to the Scottish lug, "fire;"
probably so named because he united the subtlety and
untrustworthiness (or treachery) of fire with its destroy-
ing properties,] in the Norse mythology, the god of evil
and deceit, corresponding in the main with the Ahriman
of the Zoroastrians. He is of Jotun (giant) descent, but
was received among the gods, and in the beginning was
a foster-brother of Odin. From his association with the
Msh, he is often styled AsA-LoKl or ASALOKE. I le is
called by various appellations ; among others, the Slan-
derer or Accuser, epithets exactly corresponding to the
Greek &&>>of, (Latin Diafolus.) He is the enemy and
mocker, as well as tempter, of gods and men. As proof
of his subtlety, he often changed his sex, assuming on
different occasions the form of a mare, a cow, an old
woman, etc., as well as that of the gods. The ;Usir often
made use of his cunning and strength ; but still more
frequently they had cause to rue those very powers em-
ployed against themselves. Professor Petersen furnishes
perhaps the most philosophical and most satisfactory
account of Loki and his various attributes that can any-
where be found. Among other things, he observes thai
"Asaloke forms an antagonism (modsatning) to all the
other gods. He is the (principle of] evil exerting itself
in every direction. 1 le runs in the veins of mankind as
sensuality. He is the destructive [power] of nature in
air, in fire, and in water. In the bosom of the earth |he
shows himself] as volcanic fire ; in the sea as a devour-
ing serpent ; in the lower world ( underverdfn ) as pale
Death. He is not confined to any one part of nature,
but, like Odin, pervades it all. . . . And all that he is
in [external] nature, the same is he in the mind of man :
shrewdness, but also cunning and falsehood at the same
time ; spirit, but likewise craft, deceit, and malice. . . .
And in each of these forms he continually becomes worse
and worse ; according to the old proverb, that 'every-
thing grows worse as it grows older.'" ("Nordisk My-

olojTj," pp. 355-6.)

Through the deceitful malice of Loki, Balder, the
beautiful and good, was slain by the hand of his blind
brother Hoder. (See BALDER.) By the female Jotun
Angurboda, Loki was the father of the wolf Fenrir, of
the World-Serpent, (or Midgard's Ormr,) and of Hela,
the goddess of death. He is also fabled to have been (by
a change of sex) the dam of the horse Sleipnir. The
^Jsir, exasperated on account of the death of Balder,
determined at length to take vengeance on Loki. He
had fled to the mountains, and there built himself a
house which was open on four sides, whence he could
see everything that happened throughout the world. By
day he often transformed himself into a salmon, and hid
himself in a waterfall. The gods, learning his hiding.

place, attempted to catch him with a net ; he sprang
jver the net, but Thor caught him by the tail. This is
the reason, we are told, why the salmon has so thin and
pointed a tail. Having thus captured Loki, the gods
bound him with magic cords to three sharp stones. A
venomous snake was then hung above his head, so that
the poison might continually drip on his face. But his
faithful wife Sigyn (sig'in) stands by him and catches the
falling venom in a cup. When the cup is full, while she
is emptying it the poison falls upon his face, which makes
him howl with anguish and writhe his body so that the
whole earth trembles. Loki will break loose from his
bonds at Ragnarock, (the " twilight or evening of the
gods,") when he will become the leading spirit among
the enemies of the ./Esir. He is not only the leader of
Fenrir and the other progeny of evil, but he is said
to steer the fatal ship Naglfar which conveys the sons
of Muspel over the ocean. In the final conflict he will
encounter Heimdall, and they will slay each other. Frey
falls under the sword of Surt. Tyr slays and is slain by
the dog Garm. Odin is devoured by the wolf Fenrir,
which in turn is killed by Vidar. Thor slays the world-
serpent, but dies immediately afterwards from the effects
of its venom. Then Surt scatters fire over the earth,
and the whole world is consumed. (See FENRIR.) We
are told, however, that this destruction is not to last
forever. A new earth, forever green and beautiful, will
rise out of the sea. Vali and Vidar (the slayer of Fen-
rir) will survive the conflagration, and will be joined by
Modi and Magni, the sons of Thor and Balder, and
Hoder will return from the realms of Hela. The sun
before her destruction bore a daughter more beautiful
than herself. As successor to her mother, she will pursue
her appointed path through the renovated world. A new
race shall fill the earth, and all evil come to an end.

Lokmaii or Locman, lok'mln', written also Loq-
man, an ancient Arabian sage, celebrated for his wis-
dom, and supposed to be the author of a collection of
popular Oriental fables. He is mentioned in the Koran,
and is regarded as a contemporary of David and Solo-
mon. One Arabian writer tells us that Lokman (who is
called " the oldest sage") was an Abyssinian slave be-
longing to an Israelite in the time of King David, and
that he was a tailor by trade. Another writer says he
had read more than 10,000 wise sayings and maxims, but
none finer than those of Lokmin. It is related that
Lokman, being asked whence he had learned his wisdom,
replied, " From the blind, who do not set down their
feet until they know the place ;" and when asked from
whom he had learned good manners, he said, " From
the ill-mannered, because I avoid everything offensive
in them." Coincident traditions suggest the possible, if
not probable, identity of Lokman and jEsop. " Many
passages of his history," says Silvestre de Sacy, " seem
evidently borrowed from the life of ^*Esop." " Nothing
in his fables is characteristic of Arabian genius ; and
they have received the name of LokmSn only because
he was renowned for wisdom." They were edited and
translated into Latin by Erpenius in 1615.

Lola Montez, lo'la mon'tgr, (MARIA DOLORES FOR-
Ris GILBERT,) a famous female adventurer, was born
about 1820, at Limerick. At an early age she made her
dibut at Paris as a danseuse, and by her beauty and
genius attracted many admirers. About 1846 she went
to Munich, where she captivated the king, Louis, who
gave her the title of Countess of Lansfeld. After several
ministers had been discarded by her influence, her
enemies prevailed in 1848, and she retired from Bavaria.
She was afterwards married twice, and lived in England
and the United States, where she lectured with success
in various cities. She published a volume of lectures,
and was the reputed author of a work called "The Arts

sect in England many years after his death. Their doc-
trines appear to have been similar to those of the Prot-
estants. The term Lollard was applied to the disciple*
