Gylfaginning, which is part of Snorra Edda, was composed in Iceland in the 13th century, and holds the stories of many of the Pre-Christian myths of northern Europe. It is believe to have been composed by the Icelander Snorri Sturlusson. Snorra Edda consists of three separate parts, Gylfaginning, Skaldskápamál and Háttatal, all functioning together as a greater work and guide for the aspiring medieval poet and storyteller.
Sága is also mentioned in Gylfaginning amongst the Ásynjur.
Lindow (2001, p. 265) has suggested, on the basis of the etymology of the name Sága referencing the role of a seeress (Simek 2007, p. 274), that Sága and Sökkvabekkr might be different names for Frigg and Fensalir, used for the purposed of alliteration. Frigg is described as a seeress in Lokasenna.
