Herʹmensul or Ermensul

.

A Saxon deity, worshipped in Westphaʹlia. Charlemagne broke the idol, and converted its temple into a Christian church. The statue stood on a column, holding a standard in one hand, and a balance in the other. On its breast was the figure of a bear, and on its shield a lion. Probably it was a war-god.
