Laws and Assemblies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

General overview of early laws in medieval Scandinavia especially dealing with a pagan religion, and also an overview of pre-Christian assembly sites in Scandinavia. The product of an international interdisciplinary team, the History and Structures strand of the Pre-Christian Religion of the North series aims to approach the subject by giving equal weight to archaeological and textual sources, taking into consideration recent theories on religion within all the disciplines that are needed in order to gain a comprehensive view of the religious history and world view of pre-Christian Scandinavia from the perspective of the beginning of the twenty-first century.
Volume II treats the social, geographical, and historical contexts in which the religion was practiced and through which it can be understood. This volume also includes communication between worlds, primarily through various ritual structures.
