An elf (plural: elves) is a kind of humanlike supernatural being in Germanic mythology and folklore. In medieval Germanic-speaking cultures, elves appear commonly to have been thinking of as beings with magical powers and supernatural beauty, ambivalent closer to day-to-day humans and succesful of both assisting or hindering them. However, the small print of these beliefs have diverse appreciably over time and space, and have flourished in each pre-Christian and Christian cultures. The phrase elf is located at some stage in the Germanic languages and looks initially to have intended 'white being'. Reconstructing the early idea of an elf relies upon generally on texts, written by means of Christians, in Old and Middle English, medieval German, and Old Norse.
These companion elves variously with the gods of Norse mythology, with inflicting illness, with magic, and with splendor and seduction. After the medieval period, the phrase elf tended to end up much less frequent at some point of the Germanic languages, dropping out to choice native phrases like Zwerg ("dwarf") in German and huldra ("hidden being") in Scandinavian languages, and to loan-words like fairy (borrowed from French into most of the Germanic languages). Still, beliefs in elves continued in the early contemporary period, mainly in Scotland and Scandinavia, the place elves had been concept of as magically effective humans living, typically invisibly, alongside daily human communities. They persevered to be related with inflicting ailments and with sexual threats.For example, a variety of early current ballads in the British Isles and Scandinavia, originating in the medieval period, describe elves trying to seduce or abduct human characters.
