In the Viking Age , people sometimes wore hammer amulets on necklaces to display their faith in Thor, a counterpart to those who wore cross amulets to signify their faith in Christ.
Intriguingly, Viking Age soapstone molds have been discovered in Denmark and Sweden that have molds for casting both cross and hammer pendants.
Was this the work of a shrewd, entrepreneurial blacksmith, or of someone who devotedly followed both Thor and Christ, or of someone with some other set of motivations?
Such questions are, of course, unanswerable due to the ambiguity and scarcity of the evidence. These amulets and memorial stones also exemplify the coexistence of Christianity and paganism in Scandinavia during the Viking Age, however tense or amicable it may have been in different places and at different times.
Many, perhaps even most, people had elements of both religions in their beliefs and practices. Thus, the cross and the hammer could be used simultaneously without apparently causing much of a stir or creating cognitive dissonance.
Consider, for example, the grave of a woman buried near the trade town of Hedeby. Her body was adorned with a cross necklace, yet her coffin was decorated with hammers.
Likewise, some of the inhabitants of the village of Pollista in central Sweden were buried with both cross and hammer necklaces.

A Dictionary of Northern Mythology. The first use of the hammer's name was in the "Tales of Asgard" feature in Thor Dec. The weapon's origin is eventually revealed in Thor Annual 11 , with another version presented in Thor vol.
Mjolnir's origin in Marvel continuity mirrors the original Norse legend. The hammer is created when Odin 's adopted son Loki cuts off the hair of the goddess Sif as part of a cruel jest, and, when threatened with violence by Thor, promises to fetch replacement hair from the dwarf smiths.
Loki commissions the hair from the Sons of Ivaldi, and the obliging dwarves create the hair and a magic ship and spear as gifts for the gods.
Loki is convinced that no one can match their workmanship, and challenges a dwarf named Eitri to make finer treasures. Eitri creates a golden ring and golden boar spear with magical properties, and then begins work on a hammer.
Loki panics at the sight of the treasures, and, afraid he will lose the wager, transforms himself into a mayfly and stings Eitri's assistant on the brow as he is working the bellows for the forge.
The assistant stops for a moment to wipe away the blood, and the bellows fall flat. As a result, the hammer's handle is shorter in length than Eitri had originally intended, meaning that the hammer could only be wielded one-handed.
Despite the error, the Norse gods consider Eitri to have forged the greater treasures. Loki loses the bet and in retaliation the Sons of Ivaldi sew Loki's lips shut.
The ruler of the Norse gods, Odin , uses the hammer — called Mjolnir "Grinder" by Eitri — and eventually passes it to his son Thor, on the condition that he first prove he is worthy to wield the weapon.
In the second volume of Thor , another version of the hammer's origin is depicted when Odin orders the dwarven blacksmiths Eitri, Brok and Buri to forge Mjolnir using the core of a star.
