The Holy Land is an area currently controlled by the elves.
The significance of the land stems from being the homeland of Brimir's people, from which they were expelled by the elves.
Pope Victor wanted to expel the elves and recover the Holy Land.
The village of Niðavellir is Brimir's hometown.
The exact location of Miðgarðr is unknown. However, it may be located near Niðavellir.
The concept may be based on the Holy Land (Latin: Terra Sancta, Hebrew: אֶרֶץ הַקוֹדֵשׁ ʼEreṣ ha-Qodeš) of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, which is synonymous with the Land of Israel (Hebrew: אֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל ʼEreṣ Yisraʼel).
